Evelyne

I came up with this shawl design as a gift for my mother-in-law. It is a good stash buster if you have one skein of mohair yarn hanging out somewhere in your house. Enjoy!!





Evelyne
Yarn: Madil Kid Seta, blue colorway, approx. 237yds
Needle size: US 10 and US 11
Final Measurements: 16in x 48in


Lace pattern
Row 1: Edge sts, *yo, k2tog, k2, rep from * to edge sts, edge sts
Row 2 & 4: Edge sts, *purl to edge sts, edge sts
Row 3: Edge sts, k2, *yo, k2tog, k2, rep from * to edge sts, edge sts

Shawl pattern
Cast on 60sts with the size 11 needle.
Work 4 border rows in garter stitch with the size 11 needle.

Main body
A: Work 3 repeats of lace pattern with size 10 needle, keeping 4 edge sts in garter stitch at each end.
B: Now work 12 rows in garter stitch with size 11 needle.

Repeat sections A and B until shawl is desired length, ending with a lace pattern section.

Then work 4 rows in garter stitch, bind off loosely with size 11 needle, and block the shawl.

PS: My shawl had 7 repeats of the lace pattern, and 6 repeats of the garter stitch.

  1. Ooooh! I'm thinking this, if made narrower, would make a lovely scarf.

  2. It definitely would Anonymous. The cool thing about the pattern though is that, if you use laceweight yarn, you could just scrunch up the shawl and it becomes a lovely scarf. Open it up, and it becomes a shawl. :)
