Zen Rain Shawlette: Zen Rain is a wide, shallow, ruffled scarf/shawlette. I daydreamed this shawl while watching rain run down a window. Lorajean Kelley of Knitted Wit dyed a beautiful, cloudy sky gray with her Bling fingering weight yarn base for me. The pattern is very rhythmic to knit, and oh, so zen.
The pattern is one size, and is designed to use most/all of one 100 gm/420 yard skein of luxury fingering weight yarn. Gauge is 12 stitches per 2 inches in stockinette stitch; I used a US size 6 needle. There are options for an extravagant ruffle, and a more sedate ruffle. Charts and line by line instructions for the lace pattern are included.
