Paris Loop Shawl

Project Description

What was your source for this knitting project? Online Photo or Website Name of website or photo Paris Loop Link to website or photo http://www.stefaniejapel.com/shop/freestuff/parisLoop.html What are you most proud of? This is a great design for people who are new to circular knitting and introduces the basics. What advice would you give someone starting this project? There are no shaping techniques required, just pure and simple knitting and purling. If you are already a circular pro, this can be knit while watching videos! The shaping is achieved by changing needle size. The gauge decreases as the piece is worked from the hemline to the neckline. This decrease in gauge creates an A-line shape, and adds stability to the neckline so it does not constantly require adjusting while being worn. The needle sizes listed below are the ones used for the original. Because the yarn is so lofty and stretchy, and because the exact circumference of this piece isn't crucial, the needle sizes can vary according to what you have on hand. The length of the circulars can vary, too.

What you will need

  • 402 yards of Gedifra Cicco yarn
  • bulky / 12 ply (7 wpi).
