Candied Apples Shawl
Candied Apples Shawl
The Candied Apples shawl is an asymmetrical piece that is knitted sideways. It has a zigzag edge on one side, which makes for an interesting shawl. It also features a combination of stockinette stitch and lace knitting for a more intricate texture.
I originally designed this shawl pattern for my friend who is a beginner in lace knitting, and I have since made it simpler to make it easy to understand. You can use hand dyed or variegated yarns for this shawl — any kind of yarn will look great with this pattern. You can even use thicker yarns so you can use the shawl this winter.
Yarn Used For The Sample
Araucania Puelo (100% Llama, 240 yards [220 m]/100 g), color: PT 1968, 2 skeins
Use yarn in DK, sport or fingering weight. Busy, gradient yarns can also work well with this pattern.

“This is a great pattern for anyone who has mastered the basics of knitting and purling and who is ready to venture out into the beginning of lace knitting. It is also a wonderful, relaxing pattern for more experienced knitters desiring a knit night social knitting project or a “work on while traveling” knit. Great design to play with a bit of color. ” nestinknitter
