PATTERN DETAILS

Breezy and light, elegant and super feminine! This shawl has a beautiful drape. This is a charted pattern. It has been voted suitable for beginner lace knitters for following reasons: *easy to read lace in both - body and border patterns *easy to memorize the pattern *has no complex stitches *easy to pick up and knit without getting lost in the pattern. However, I would not suggest it as a very first lace project for a beginner knitter, since it might turn tricky to fix any mistakes, if such are made. I would suggest yarns that drape well - alpaca, merino, cashmere, kid mohair, silk... Tonal sock yarn also looks really nice, but too much of a variegation will not work as well, with this pattern. If you are a tight knitter, you might want to consider going a size up when choosing needles. You can add beads throughout the body part of the shawl at each double decrease, which creates an absolutely fascinating look. BASIC SKILLS NECESSARY knit and purl yarn over, single and double decrease provisional cast on is explained in pattern SIZING / FINISHED MEASUREMENTS 5 sizes, easily adjustable

Recommended with this pattern

  • 340 - 600 yards of fingering or lace weight yarn
  • 3-4 mm needles (US 3-6)
  • 2 stitch markers to mark center stitch

Knitting and crocheting are an addiction. I love the moment of creation! I have tried a lot of crafts, but these have stayed with me for most of my life. My first project was a dress for my doll at the age of 5 or 6, with some help of my grandmother. It was fairly good in fact, even had a pattern that I remember still. From scarves and vests, I have done sweaters and shawls even at an early age - both crocheted and knitted. Here I have to say big thanks to my mother, who was always a little pushy with me about finishing the projects when I was getting bored with them� :) Lately I have developed and addiction to making shawls and scarves. I just love them! I like trying out new techniques and patterns, there is always something I have not done yet� I speak (and read) fluent English, Latvian, Greek and Russian, but I will answer my messages in English or Latvian.
