Project Instructions

  • 1
    Use a gauge of 12 sts + 16 rows (4 inch) over pattern to knit a shawl that measures about 24 inch x 60 inch at its widest and longest points. Be sure to check your gauge. When you match the gauge in a pattern, your project will be the size specified in the pattern and the materials specified in the pattern will be sufficient. If it takes you less stitches to make a 4 inch square, try using a smaller size needle; if it takes you more stitches, try a larger size needle. Download template for abbreviations not explained elsewhere. Special stitches and techniques: M1 (make 1) = An increase worked by lifting the horizontal strand lying between needles and placing it onto the left needle. Knit this new stitch through the back loop – 1 st increased. 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 tog – 1 st decreased. Note: Center Panel of Shawl is worked first, then sts are picked up across side edges for left and right panels.
