This is the second part of my lace knitting course. This shawl might look difficult to knit, as the lace sections are significantly longer than the garter sections, but the lace instructions are easy to follow and only basic increases or decreases are used, so that beginner lace knitters can handle them without problems.
The result is an airy, classic triangular shawl that can be used in any occasion, depending on your color choice.
Beginner lace knitters looking for challenges can knit it in two colors.
M, L Finished size after blocking: 61 x 155cm (24 x 61 inches), 72x189cm (28 1/4 x 74.5 inches)
Yarn used in sample:
Zitron Filisilk Handdyed by Soft Rainbow (600 m (656 yards) / 100 g, 70/ merino, 30% silk), 468 m (511 yards) (78 g)
Cca 500 m (546 yards) lace weight yarns with significant wool content
3.5 mm (US 4) circular needle, at least 100 cm (40”) long (or any size that gives you the right gauge).
tapestry needle, 4 stitch markers. More stitch markers to separate repeat sections, if requested.
17 sts x 36 rows in 4" [10 cm] in lace pattern. Please note that in this particular project getting the right gauge is not essential. However, working with different yarn weight / gauge will effect both the yardage and the final size of the project as well.
Ready, Steady, Go e-book contains the 3 shawl patterns that are especially designed for beginner lace knitters to help to understand and practice lace knitting techniques.
