Pattern Details

A flirty, half-hexagon shawl in two sizes (petite/tall), worked from hem to neck, featuring openwork motifs that mimic the textured patterns in ice crystals and snowflakes. While the stitchwork and construction appear intricate, the motifs are actually worked entirely with simple maneuvers; the challenge with this piece is that it may require extra focus and attention. The result is well-worth the investment however, and wrong-side rest rows provide the opportunity to catch up, so that it knits up quickly in a heavier laceweight yarn. All in all, a delightful project in which to immerse oneself for a treat. Substituting yarn and/or needles may result in an overall variation in size and drape. Finished Size: 21(28) inches long at center back and 48(72) inches across top edge (stretched and blocked) Gauge: 23 sts and 34 rows = 4 inches in stockinette on larger needle (unblocked)

I am the owner of Knitspot - knitting patterns, clubs, and artisan yarns. I am a life-long knitter with a background in the fashion and graphic design fields, and began designing clothing, knitwear and accessories during the 1970s. I teach and write about knitting, spinning, and designing at my blog, Knitspot. I live and work in Ohio with David, who loves wool, too. My design work/profile has been included in Knitty, The Knitter, Interweave Knits, and Twist Collective, Sock Club, Brave New Knits, as well as several upcoming publications. The complete catalog of Knitspot patterns is available for browsing and purchasing at http://www.knitspot.com/knitting_pattern/index.php Knitspot yarn clubs are reknowned for perfect pairings of luxury yarn and design, as well as the rollicking good fun in our Ravelry clubhouse where members meet, chat, and knit through club projects together. http://www.knitspot.com/clubs/index.html Our Bare Naked yarns are as close to the farm as a knitter can get, using fresh fiber produce from regional growers which is then spun into yarn at smaller artisan mills with which I have worked over the years. The collection is focused on single-breed pure wool yarns and exotic blends, with colors that range an entire array of natural tones—yarn the way nature made it. http://knitspot.com/knitting_pattern/yarn-c-21.html
