Inspired by the rectangular shawl Aurora wears in her walk through the woods in Disney's classic cartoon, this shawl stretches a single skein of fingering weight yarn into a whopping 60 inch wrap, complete with an edging of delicate, antique lace. The main portion of the shawl is stockinette bordered with broken stripes of garter stitch to prevent curling; it's worked expeditiously on giant needles. Once bound off, stitches are picked up along one edge and the lace is knitted right onto the shawl, no seaming needed! BASIC SKILLS NECESSARY cast on pick up stitches along an edge make a yarn over basic increasing basic decreasing GAUGE 20 sts/26 rows = 4 inches in stockinette on smaller needles 9 sts/14 rows = 4 inches in stockinette on larger needles Gauge is taken over swatches that have been blocked.
