See You in September is the third installment in my friendship series honoring my closest lifelong friends. This shawl was designed for a woman who is incredibly strong, capable and accomplished. The classic oak and acorn lace pattern is the perfect embodiment of who she is.
See You in September is worked from the bottom up starting with a three stitch cast on. Unlike many bottom up shawls, you are never overwhelmed by the number of stitches on the needle. As the number of stitches increases, you begin short rows and rarely work across all stitches at once. The short rows give See You in September its distinctive shape. Available in two sizes.
Size: Medium (Large)
Recommended yarn: Madelinetosh Tosh Merino Light - 1(3) skeins. Pictured in Glazed Pecan in medium size. Actual yardage used was
approximately 410 (880) yards.
Width: 52 1/2" (80")
Depth at midpoint: 14" (20")
This is not a beginner pattern or a mindless knit. You will need to follow charts. The pattern provides a good introduction to short rows, since only the wrap and turn are worked. You never need to knit the wrap making it a one-row operation.
18 sts = 4" in garter stitch
I have been knitting, designing and surrounding myself with yarn for more years than I care to admit. More recently I made the decision to formally publish my designs. In my day job, I run the online yarn shop Whitknits.com.
