Garland Shawl

Garland is a crescent shaped shawl, knit from side to side. The lacy border is knit at the same time as the garter stitch body, which increases from one end to the center and then decreases to the other end. Optional beading along the leaves’ center veins adds sparkle and weight for drape. This shawl can be knit as a wide, shallow crescent, or a deeper, more traditionally shaped crescent. Knitter’s choice!

The wider shawl is like a big hug.

The narrower shawl sits comfortably on the shoulders when centered, and looks good at a jaunty angle, too.

The shawls are knit with fingering weight yarn. I used Knitted Wit‘s Cashy Lite, a wonderfully squishy blend of 80% merino/10% cashmere/10% nylon, 495 yards/115g/4 oz. Charts and line by line instructions for the lace edging are included. If you want to add beads, the wider shawl requires 300 size 6/0 or 8/0 seed beads; the narrower shawl requires 270 beads.

  6. I thought this might be a fun shawl pattern to bring with me for the Traveling Ewe trip going to Corvalis/Eugene. Are you going on that trip also Michele? My daughter and I are REALLY looking forward to it.
