This shawl combines simple stockinette with a touch of texture and a deep garter ruffle. It is knit from the top down and can be knit with a straight top edge or with curving ends. The size of the shawl will depend on the amount of yarn you have, as you knit to a certain point with half of your yarn. The measurements given are for four balls (700 m) of Felted Tweed at the specified gauge. Choosing not to knit the curved ends will give you a slightly deeper shawl with the same yardage. Yarn with some alpaca is recommended for drape. The textured band will show up better in a lighter color.
Note: Felted Tweed is classified as a DK weight yarn, but many find it knits up more like sport weight.
Finished measurements: approximately 137 cm wide and 66 cm deep, easily modified
Gauge: 17 stitches to 10 cm in stockinette on smaller needles. Gauge is not critical but will affect the size and meterage required
Note: Though conversions to the metric system have been made on this page for your convenience, the pattern itself uses American measurements.
