This triangular shawl begins with a garter tab cast on and works its way out from the center, increasing every other row for a symmetrical shawl. Two stitch patterns are used in the body of the shawl, one of which has a “faux nupp.” Then, using a different color, a knitted on border is added to the shawl. Pattern includes both written directions as well as charts for the lace.
Skills needed: knitting, purling, yarn overs, decreases (knit two together; slip, slip, knit; slip one, knit one, pass slipped stitch over; and slip one, knit two together, passed slipped stitch over), increasing to five stitches from one stitch (faux nupp).
Calls for US 5 / 3.75 mm 32” (80 cm) or longer circular needle, 400 yds of fingering weight yarn for the body, and 250 yds of fingering weight yarn for the border.
