Hi! I'm Sarah Wilson, also known as the Sexy Knitter. I started crafting at a very young age and have tried a little bit of almost everything - sewing, quilting, cross-stitch, needlepoint, embroidery, crewel, plastic canvas, weaving, knitting, crochet, beading, jewelry making...the list goes on. These days, I am a full-time knitwear designer whose work has been seen in publications like Interweave Knits, Knitty.com, Knitscene Magazine, The Knitter, Your Knitting Life, and more! You can find me online at sexyknitter.com, or on social networking sites (like Twitter, Ravelry, and Etsy) as TheSexyKnitter.View all patterns by designer (81) »
I was so excited to be asked to design this shawlette, based on Barbara Walker's stitch patterns. For the main body, I chose a small, allover eyelet that would not be in competition with the self?striping nature of the Regia. Barbara's beautiful "Shower Stitch" pattern grows fluidly out of the eyelets, forming a natural border for the shawl. I've decorated the spine with a classic horseshoe cable, which widens with the change of patterning. When united, these patterns form a shawl glamorous enough for any city girl.
This 6-page PDF includes both charts and written instructions for each section of the work.
The shawl begins at the top (straight edge) with a small strip of garter stitch, from which stitches are picked up.
