2013 LA Yarn Crawl Shawl
The 2013 LA Yarn Crawl Shawl was written exclusively for the Los Angeles County Yarn Crawl from April 11-April 14th, 2013! If you missed out on the Crawl don’t worry. You can now purchase the pattern online.
The 2013 LA Yarn Crawl Shawl is traditional triangle shawl knit from the neck to the long edge. The shawl has a knit-on border which means it’s not necessary to bind off 261+ stitches at once! The bold knit-on edging is worked back and forth over 22 stitches and a k2tog with the main body stitches every other row eliminates the large bind off stitch by stitch. This is a great shawl for beginning-intermediate Lace Knitters.

Yarn substitution may result in a change in estimated yardage, gauge and finished size of your individual project.
A note about Gauge
Are you a tight knitter or a loose knitter? If you are a loose knitter please consider going down a few needle sizes. If you are a tight knitter you may have to go up a few sizes to get gauge. Your swatch should be stretched after you’ve soaked it in water and then pinned it out to make it wider to dry, just as you would with the finished shawl.
This quick-to-knit triangle lace shawl is simple and elegant with its lovely, lace edging.
