PROGRESSIVE SHAWL Original Knitting Pattern

This pattern is under revision and not currently available.
Errata (in progress) may be found here
I've called this Cindy Knits Original triangle shawl "Progressive" because it is designed to progress from easier to more challenging knitting as it grows. Some lace/shawl knitting experience recommended.

The center triangle is worked first in simple garter stitch. Then wide borders are worked on picked up stitches. The inner border is stockinette based, with patterning worked only on the right side rows. Patterning on both right and wrong side rows is introduced for the garter based outer border section. Then an edging incorporating double yarn overs is knit on to the sides as it is worked. Finally, a narrow knit on edging finishes the top.

The sample in the photo was worked with approximately 820 yds/750 meters of heavy fingering/light sport weight yarn on size 8/5mm needles, and blocked to a finished size of 81" across the top and 41" from top to the bottom point. A smaller, shoulder type shawl could be made with finer yarn and smaller needles.

The 11 page pattern gives written row by row directions and includes charts for the border and edgings. It will come as an instantly down-loadable pdf file (you will need Adobe Reader to open it.)

Price $5.00
