PATTERN DETAILS

Inspired by an 1870's counterpane pattern, this nearly-circular shawlette combines tailored details with a feminine sensibility. Rise to the challenge of the initial cast-on and you'll be rewarded with an easy decreasing rib pattern that simultaneously eliminates stitches and the need for seaming. The interplay of delicate eyelets and bold angular ribbed decreases add drama to the clean lines of this go-anywhere piece.

Jill Wolcott Knits
I am a fashion designer who designs hand knits. I love hand knits because we create both the fabric and the shape. My designs reflect my intense interest in fashion, with a keen eye to design and technique. Jill Wolcott Knits® patterns are very complete--I strive to create a complete and clear guide to a completed project and leave little room for interpretation. When a pattern challenges you to conquer a new technique, the directions and support are there to give you a great result (I've given it lots of thought and coached many knitters to new skill heights). Your reward will be the skill that you take forward in your knitting. My love is knitting, not sewing, so I design so that as much as possible is done on the knitting needles with sewing only as absolutely necessary. This isn't necessarily a shortcut, but I think it works really well for those who don't love the finishing process. I have an extensive online techniques library to help you master techniques I use, and anything specific to a pattern is included.
