Summerdale Shawl

Basic Skills Necessary:

  • increase, descrease
  • simple lace stitches
  • Garter stitch

Pattern Description:

Small shawls are a great way to show off the sock yarn that's too pretty to wear on your feet!
This crescent shaped shawl has a great shape that's easy to wear, as it stays on without a shawl pin; it can work as a scarf and be draped in many different ways.
It's designed to use one skein (about 425 yds) of a solid, or semi-solid yarn such as Mountain Colors Crazyfoot.
A larger size is provided as well.

Beginning with a center neck cast on, the shawl features 2 columns of yarn-over increases, plus increases at the edges. The first section is in garter stitch, so the knitter will see fast progress. The pretty lace edging forms a ruffled edge to complete the graceful feminine look.

Approx 52 (78) in / 130 (196) cm edge to edge and 15 (18.5) in / 37 (46) cm from midpoint (neck) to bottom edge, after blocking.
