January Estonian Lace Shawl - pattern

Here is the first of my planned 12 shawls with Estonian Lace Patterns (see this blog post for explanation). 

The January shawl features a classic twig pattern. This variation also have nupps. 

Here is a chart and key for the pattern (repeat in red):

 Twig Pattern with Nupps

Yarn used: KnitPicks Gloss Lace, 100 g
Needles: US 6 (4 mm)

How I did it:
  • Cast on 91 sts, 
  • Knit 6 rows, then work the body of the shawl as follows:
    • Odd rows: k4, sts 1-3 once, sts 4-14 seven times, sts 15-17 once, k4
    • Even rows: k4, p to last 4 sts, k4
    • Repeat 8 rows of Chart 52 times or to the desired length
  • Knit 6 rows 
  • Cast off all sts. 
Wash and block the shawl.

You can see that the shawl is pretty long!
The finished size:
16 x 79 inches
or, in metric system:
42 x 200 cm

Happy knitting everyone  - I am off to knit the February Shawl!
