Lion Brand Vanna's Complement Taconic Shawl

Knit this easy and stylish shawl and pair with your favorite cool weather outfit for a one-of-kind look. Share your stitches using #ACMooreInspired.

Use a gauge of 12 sts + 24 rows (about 4") in Lace pattern to knit a Shawl that measures about 42" x 38" before folding and seaming. Be sure to check your gauge. If it takes you fewer stitches to match the gauge, try using a smaller size needle; if it takes you more stitches, try using a larger size needle.

    Abbreviations:
    K = Knit
    P2tog = Purl 2 together
    Rep = Repeat
    St(s) = Stitch(es)
    WS = Wrong side
    Yo (Yarn over –between p2tog sts) = An increase that also creates a small decorative hole (eyelet) in the fabric, worked as follows: take yarn to back, over the right needle. This creates the new st. Bring yarn to front, between the needles. You are now ready to proceed with the next st as instructed. Note: If the next st is a knit st, do not bring yarn to front, between needles.
