Wrap yourself in this sweet little pair of shawls/shawlettes. Both shawlettes are knit in one piece (including the edging!) from tip to tip. The Flame Shawlette features an allover diamond lace pattern, while the Flicker Shawlette has areas of the diamond lace pattern selectively removed creating an asymmetrical design twist on an otherwise traditional pattern. A generous 66" (168cm) wingspan means these versatile shawlettes can be worn as a scarf or as a traditional shawl. Flicker and Flame, while quick to knit, make wonderful gifts and are great take along projects as well as the shorter length rows make them easy to put down and pick up later without losing your place. Instructions for BOTH shawls are included with this pattern. The pattern is fully charted, however, a few beginning rows are written out to aid novice chart readers in following along, so don't be intimidated if you are new to charts!

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!
