Looking for a delightfully fluffy layering piece for when the temperatures are low? A knit that combines both relaxing stockinette as well as some lace patterning? Look no further! The Kasjmier shawl has you covered. And yes, pun intended! It can, of course, also be made in a different material.
This shawl is worked from the top-down in one piece. Both written and charted instructions for the patterned edging are included. The pattern is available in 3 sizes; the shawl pictured is in the smallest size.
Difficulty level - The Kasjmier shawl starts with a garter stitch tab. The lace in the edging is worked on both RS and WS rows. Stitches used include knit, purl, yo, k2tog, skp, m1l and m1r increases as well as a centered double decrease.
This pattern is suitable for the intermediate knitter.
Sizes and finished measurements - Size S (M, L): Wingspan of 142 (160, 178) cm (56 (63, 70) inches) along the upper edge and a depth of 56 (65, 74) cm (22 ( 25 ½, 29 ¼) inches), measured after blocking.
Adjust the sizing further by working a different number of repeats of the body. This will, of course, change the amount of yarn needed.
