Green Jasper captures all the gorgeous variations found in the semi-precious gemstone. This design is knit sideways on the bias, making a shallow and asymmetrical triangle, perfect for wearing as an elegant scarf. The combination of garter stitch in a variegated hand-dyed yarn and simple lace in a solid/tonal yarn makes it a perfect choice to get the best of both worlds.
The pattern contains both fully written out and charted instructions for the lace section.
Difficulty level: Stitches used include knit, purl, yo, k2tog, skp, kfb and pfb. This pattern is therefor suitable for the intermediate knitter.
Sizes and finished measurements: Finished dimensions of the sample shawl: 192 cm (75 ½ inches) along the upper edge and a depth of 69 cm (27 inches), measured after blocking.
Make the shawl larger by adding more repeats of the garter stitch and/or by working more repeats in the lace section. This will, of course, increase the amount of yarn needed.
