Basic Skills Necessary:

  • knit lace
  • block
  • read charts or written instructions

Pattern Description:

Stray Cat is designed for two colors of lace weight or fingering yarn. But why not use leftovers from your previous projects for more contrasting colors, or even multi-variegated yarn, which is usually difficult to integrate into lace projects.

The shawl is worked from the neck down and starts with just a few stitches. It is shaped in such a way that it will stay on your shoulders conveniently even before blocking.

The pattern is fully written out and charted.

Test knitters reccomend these yarns:

madelinetosh tosh lace
Aade Lng Artistic 8/2
Aade Lng Artistic 8/1
Garnstudio DROPS Alpaca


18 stitches and 24 rows = 4 inches in stockinette

For detailed information about measurements of the finished shawls, yarn amounts needed for different sizes etc. please check the table located among the photos.

Preferred Brand/Yarn:
