September Shawlette

September Shawlette

Basic Skills Necessary:

  • ability to do lace -- yo's, ssk, k2tog, k3tog, sssk, etc
  • willing to work many, many sts on rows
  • ability to block lace to ensure it blooms!

Pattern Description:

September Shawlette is a graceful, undulating lace topper to keep you cozy when the fall chill is in the air!

shawlette starts with a garter tab
you will repeat the motifs 6 times around, always keeping the first and last 5 sts in garter
you will slip the first st of every row
when working with the CCs, you do NOT need to break the MC, just carry it on the edge for the 3 rows
I used the MC for the final BO - working one row with [k5, yo], repeated across, ending with a k5; then, on the WS, I BO as if to knit - blocking will keep this edge from curling up.
directions are given both row-by-row and charted


24 sts x 32 rows = 4" stockinette, worked flat and blocked
