As crafters, each time we purchase a yarn, we are voting with our dollars to support the growth or destruction of the earth. By choosing yarns that support organic farming and processing, that are not cruel to the animals or the people who are involved in its creation, that use low-impact or no dyes, or have a low carbon footprint we are helping to reduce the amount of damage done to the earth through the processing of yarn. With each eco-friendly yarn purchase, we're encouraging yarn manufacturers to continue producing yarns in this manner, and we continue to help our earth.
Caterpillar Knits is here to supply pattern support to yarns which fit into the descriptions above and to help spread truthful information about the processing of the chosen yarns.
This beautiful lace shawl begins at the center top edge with a provisional cast on. A few rows are worked in the cable panel. Stitches are picked up along the side of the cable panel, then the provisional stitches are picked up. Stitches are increased along each outer edge, and along the center cable panel to shape the shawl. Short rows are worked to complete each point at the lower edge of the shawl. Stiches are cast on then bound off for the knots at the point of each tip.
14 sts = 33?4" (9.5 cm) and 16 rows = 4" (10 cm) in cable and lace pattern after blocking.
