PATTERN DETAILS

A fun semicircular shawl in two sizes (petite/tall) that is sure to bring out the sun on those darker days in late fall. Its expanding sunflower design makes for some fun and interesting knitting as each section evolves from the needles. Worked from neck to hem in a lofty lace yarn, the fabric is lightweight, yet strikingly textured; this could be a new favorite. Substituting yarn and/or needles may result in an overall variation in size and drape. BASIC SKILLS NECESSARY knit, purl, increase/decrease GAUGE 24 sts and 32 rows = 4 inches in stockinette stitch SIZING / FINISHED MEASUREMENTS Length at center back (blocked) = 21(24) inches Width across shoulders (blocked) = 48(54) inches Total circumference at hem (blocked) = 120(144) inches SUGGESTED YARN 900 yards of Lace weight PREFERRED BRAND/YARN Knitting Notions Classic Merino Lace COLORWAY Clover

I am the owner of Knitspot - knitting patterns, clubs, and artisan yarns. I am a life-long knitter with a background in the fashion and graphic design fields, and began designing clothing, knitwear and accessories during the 1970s. I teach and write about knitting, spinning, and designing at my blog, Knitspot. I live and work in Ohio with David, who loves wool, too. My design work/profile has been included in Knitty, The Knitter, Interweave Knits, and Twist Collective, Sock Club, Brave New Knits, as well as several upcoming publications. The complete catalog of Knitspot patterns is available for browsing and purchasing at http://www.knitspot.com/knitting_pattern/index.php Knitspot yarn clubs are reknowned for perfect pairings of luxury yarn and design, as well as the rollicking good fun in our Ravelry clubhouse where members meet, chat, and knit through club projects together. http://www.knitspot.com/clubs/index.html Our Bare Naked yarns are as close to the farm as a knitter can get, using fresh fiber produce from regional growers which is then spun into yarn at smaller artisan mills with which I have worked over the years. The collection is focused on single-breed pure wool yarns and exotic blends, with colors that range an entire array of natural tones—yarn the way nature made it. http://knitspot.com/knitting_pattern/yarn-c-21.html
