Skill Level:

small skill level requirement Beginner

Basic Skills Necessary:

  • decreasing
  • increasing
  • yarn over
  • short rows without wraps

Pattern Description:

A shawl or shawlette knit from one side to the other in one piece. Start knitting at one end and keep going until you run out of yarn. The edging is done as you go, that's what I love about it. I love the look of a lace edging, but don't want to go back and add it later by "knitting it on".

A fun, easy knit, perfect for those one or two skeins of special fingering weight yarn. The shawl is started at one side and a combination of increases and decreases forms a graceful triangular/crescent shaped shawl. The shawl is worked in garter stitch with a small patterned border, reminiscent of rippling water. Just enough pattern to keep it interesting, but not complicated. A complete list of abbreviations and a stitch glossary explaining the techniques used in the project are included.

My design philosophy: My designs are a mixture of traditional and non-traditional elements. My patterns are easy to read and are often based on simple shapes and techniques that minimize complicated finishing. The majority of my patterns are accessories so sizing is often not critical. My love of texture and color shows up in my ability to mix yarns and to match yarns to particular styles.
