I am still at it: here is my February entry for 12 Estonian Lace shawl challenge. For this one I used a "Small Willow Leaf" Pattern.
"Small Willow Leaf" Chart
The yarn is just OK, not too happy with it - it is very uneven: too thin or too lumpy, but it has a nice little sparkle. The block shawl is very lofty.
Needles: US 6 (4 mm)
How I did it:
- Cast on 85 sts,
- Knit 6 rows, then work the body of the shawl as follows:
- Odd rows:sl1, work sts 1-18 of the Chart 5 times; work sts 19-21 once, p1
- Even rows: work as established (if a st wa p on RS it will be k on WS, if the st was k on RS, it will be p on WS; ssk, k2tog, ccd and yo are p on WS)
- Repeat 10 rows of Chart to a total of 30 times or to the desired length
- Knit 6 rows
- Cast off all sts.
The shawl is wide, but not too long.
The finished size:
20 x 50 inches
or, in metric system:
50 x 130 cm
