Pattern Details

Caridad is a large rectangular shawl that features an unusual construction method. It begins with a circular cast on at the center, then the central strip is worked on both sides. Stitches are then picked up around the perimeter of this strip, and the remainder of the shawl is worked in the round. Although the end result is quite complex, it uses only basic lace stitches, and the repeats are intuitive to work. Pattern is charted only, there are no line by line directions. Small size (19" x 69") uses roughly 1,400 yards lace weight yarn, Large size (27" x 70") uses approximately 2,000 yards lace weight yarn. You will need a long circular needle (at least 60”) as well as double point needles in the same size to work this design. Suggested needle size is US 1.5 (2.5mm) to achieve a gauge of 28 sts and 34 rows = 4" in stockinette, after blocking.

Recommended with this pattern

  • 1400-2000 yards Lace yarn

I'm a third generation knitter, who only really picked it up after discovering lace about 7 years ago. I've been designing for just over 5 years now, and I absolutely love it!
