You wont get bored knitting this unique and inspired shawl! It is worked sideways from one point to the other. On the first side you will work patterned sections and plain stocking stitch short row wedges alternately. They are complemented by a garter stitch triangle on the second side.
The curly fringes are worked as you go. No extra loose ends to weave in!
And finally two wee lampions add the final touches to this shawl extraordinaire.
It requires no more than one skein of Wollmeise yarn, i.e. 150 g or 467 m, to knit up. The only skill you will need is to be comfortable with working from a chart. All other techniques, i.e. the increases and decreases as well as the cast-on and bind-off, the I-cord plus the short rows are explained in a detailed illustrated appendix.
24 sts and 38 rows = 10 cm (4 in)
- stocking st
- US#2.5/3 mm
510 yards of Fingering weight

My name is Jana Huck. I live in Luebeck, Germany. I started knitting when I searched for something that I still could do while being sick and it has become a passion. I almost started designing right from the beginning as I had no patience for following directions. I always need a challenge when I knit. I love to have an idea and to think: Yes, this would be nice but it is impossible to do. Then I find a way to do it. Whenever I see hand-knitted items, I try to figure out in my head how they were knit. Of course, there are many, many knitwear designers that I admire and to relax, I now love to work from their patterns.
I feel that it is very fulfilling to write down my ideas and share them with other knitters. Hooray for the internet which is making this so easy!
I have been knitting for a few years now. I am still in awe by the many possibilities. I definitely do not knit fast enough. ;)
