Basic Skills Necessary:

  • Techniques & Skills Used: cable CO, knit, short rows.

Pattern Description:

Rondelay is a one-skein garter shawl constructed from three sequential half rounds or rondels, which grow from cast on stitches using short rows and strategically placed radial YO increases. Each rondel builds upon the previous one, creating a finished semi-circular shape that drapes beautifully as it wraps around the shoulders. Designed to show off the colors of a variegated or hand dyed skein, Rondelay looks equally fantastic in a solid color.

Gauge:

Gauge: 18 st and 36 rows/4" in garter stitch, after blocking. Gauge is not critical for this project, however a different gauge may result in a smaller or larger finished shawl, and different yardage requirements.

Sizing / Finished Measurements:

  • Size: one size; approximately 50" length along top edge and 9" depth at widest part of rondel.

Materials:

  • Yarn: Malabrigo Yarn Sock (100% superwash merino, 440 yards/100g); 1 skein, shown in Indiecita. Sample used approximately 410 yards of light fingering weight yarn.

You Will Also Need:

  • Other Materials: US 6 40" circular needle, or size to match gauge. Yarn needle.
