Rose Garden Shawl

Project Description

What are you most proud of? The short rows worked! What advice would you give someone starting this project? Short rows really do disappear in the garter stitch, so you don't have to worry about the more complicated wrap and turns. Just turning worked out fine.

What you will need

  • Bamboo Ewe. 55% viscose
  • 45% wool

Love it..so you followed a regular shawl pattern until the last 12-20 inches and then began using short rows? Is that right?
CCaarrooll answered:
The garter stitch portion is all short rows to give a curved shape. I followed a Cascade pattern that suggested that.
Suzetteg2015 asked:
fabulous job. Was it a free pattern
CCaarrooll answered:
Yes, called rose garden shawl on the Cascade website. There were similar patterns with different lace.

I have a question..on the 10 row lace pattern, do you just repeat the stitches in each row til the end? Thanks
CCaarrooll answered:
Yes. There are a few edge stitches that aren't in pattern, but you just keep repeating the lace pattern line across the shawl. After you finish all the rows of the pattern, you repeat them again four times to add length to the leaf pattern.
