Project Instructions

  • 1
    Use a gauge of 12-1/2 sts + 11 rows (4 inch) over Lace Pattern to knit a shawl that measuers approximately 21 inch x 50 inch. Save time, check your gauge. If the hook or needle listed under supplies does not work, use the size that allows you to obtain the required gauge.
    Download the template for abbreviations not explained elsewhere and the chart.
    Special stitches:
    ssk (slip, slip, knit) = slip next 2 sts as if to knit, one at a time, to right needle; insert left needle into fronts of these 2 sts and knit them together – 1 st decreased.
    yo (yarn over) = an increase that also creates a small decorative hole (eyelet) in the fabric, worked as follows: Bring yarn to front, between the needles. Take yarn to back, over the right needle. This creates the new st. You are now ready to proceed with the next st as instructed.
