Item details

This lovely rectangular\/square shawl’s final shawl size is approximately 59” x 60” – almost a square and could be blocked to be a perfect square. The shawl in the pictures was made using a lace weight merino wool yarn hand dyed with natural dyes by Renaissance Dyes. You can see her lovely yarns at:

This pattern was submitted to a contest and won the lace knitting pattern prize. You can find the pattern as well as kits (the pattern with the yarn required) at Renaissance Dyes website above as well.

This shawl is knitted in the Orenburg style of knitting and is for the experienced knitter. It is knitted in a continuous fashion by knitting the bottom edging, picking up the stitches for the main body across that edge, knitting the body and the side edgings and finally knitting the top edge as you ‘cast off’ the body stitches. When all the knitting is done, the final edge stitches and top stitches are grafted together to make a completely seamless garment. Because the edges and the shawl’s body are worked at the same time, the knitter must keep track of a number of patterns at the same time.

This pattern requires approx. 2900 yards\/2650 m (total weight 7.8 oz\/220 grams) of lace weight yarn, one pair size US 1 (2.25 mm) knitting needles, stitch markers, and a yarn needle to run the ends in. You will also need a small piece of waste yarn (I would suggest a heavy cotton thread) and a crochet hook to make a chain (from the waste yarn) for the initial cast on.

The stitches used in this pattern are: knit, yarn over, knit 2 together and knit 3 together (and the various versions of these two). The overall stitch in this garment is garter stitch so there are no purl stitches. There are also some short rows (rows where you don’t knit all the stitches but turn the entire garment and work back on the stitches you just finished) to create the corners and the grafting can be a challenge.

Purchase of pattern includes email support and pattern updates. A pdf file of the pattern will be emailed within 24 hours of completed payment. Please note: e-checks can take 3-4 days to clear.
