I designed this shawl pattern highlighting several different lace patterns and elements. Most the stitches are easy knit stitches, bringing is some elements to refine the look of the lace. Casting on with the double strand Knitted method, using Nupp stitches within the lace patterns, and joining the two pieces with the Kitchner Stitch adds a nice level of expertise.
If you are unfamiliar with any of these stitches, don't be intimidated! All are very easy. The Nupp stitch is one that takes a little practice to get comfortable with. TheNupp stitch is a 3, 5, or 7 stitcch increase in one stitch and then on the following row purling those same stitches together. The key is keeping your sitches loose. Then practice... practice..practice! First, start with a 3 stitch Nupp; then work up to a 5 stitch Nupp; finally save the 7 stitch Nupp for lace weight yarn. Tutorials are easily found on the internet, in addition to most knitting books with great pictorial instructions.
An aspect I really enjoy about lace patterns is the varied end-results that simply come by using different weight yarn and needle size. Have something in your stash---give it a try! Use a size or two larger needle then the manufacturer recommends. Wool yarn blocks well, showing off the intricate lace patterns. Cotton works well also, it just doesn't block well, it is how it knits up.
I hope you enjoy your new project----I have.
