Pattern Details

The Artifact Shawlette is inspired by the ancient ruins, fossils and relics that record our history and the passage of time. The shawl features a spider web lace edging reflecting how our past and future are intertwined, while both Egyptian and Celtic influences are evident in the "woven" borders and central scroll motif. The Artifact Shawlette is worked from the bottom up using a 32" (81 cm) circular needle and features a very slight crescent shape created by a combination of short rows and uniformly placed decreases. INSTRUCTIONS The pattern is fully charted, but also includes complete written directions so the ability to read a chart is not necessary to work this pattern. Directions for how to work short rows and I-cord bind-off are also included for those who may be new to these techniques. The pattern has been professionally tech edited and test knit to reduce the potential for error. YARN NOTES A worsted weight yarn with good stitch definition and little to no halo is recommended for this shawl. Slight tonal yarns work well, but highly variegated yarn will distract from the lace, the textural borders and the inset lace motif on the shawl.

Whether you are new to knitting or have been knitting since you can’t remember when, I hope that you will enjoy my patterns. I strive to keep my patterns as straightforward as possible given the techniques being applied. I don’t want someone relatively new to knitting to be intimidated by my patterns. Nearly all of my patterns are charted, but still include full written instructions, so no worries if you prefer not to use charts. I am always happy to hear from fellow knitters and welcome questions on any of my designs - before or after purchase. Knit happy!
