This item is a digital pdf download of a knitting pattern for the lovely Leap of Faith knitted shawl.
This beautiful shawl uses the magic of dropped stitches to create an easy-to-knit lacy design. Knitters usually want to avoid dropping stitches and it takes a “Leap of Faith” to drop them on purpose! The shawl is a perfect summer accessory knit in silk or cotton; or use a merino-silk blend for a season-spanning “Leap of Faith” shawl.
Instructions are given for 2 gauges: Gauge #1: 5½ sts = 1” and Gauge #2: 5 sts = 1”. Gauge #1 will create a firmer knit, more defined fabric; Gauge #2 will create a lacier fabric with more drape.
The shawl is knit in two pieces and then joined at the center back using a 3-needle bind off. A 6-Stitch-Drop-Stitch Cable is worked on a background of Stockinette Stitch with a “rolled” Stockinette Stitch edging. Just before working the Center Back Panel, stitches are dropped, creating the lacy “ladders” on each side of the cables.
The pattern also includes supplemental instructions for a scarf variation using 1 skein of Plymouth Yarn’s Mushishi.
