Another sideways, all-in-one construction a sister for Galathea and Poppea
Note: the pattern is about to be updated to include the alternative mesh body version. Any day now…
- Shawl or shawlette-size. Knit sideways with a nifty beginning and ending
- A mindless stockinette centre (or mesh lace) with lacy borders knit as you go -- well up to a point
- Can be knit in any weight yarn
- Links to techniques used (nothing fancy, just a knitted-on or cable CO for the final border and a few kitchener stitches -- could be a 3-needle BO for the faint-hearted)
The border on this shawl requires a bit more concentration than the one for Galathea.
Mid-way I decided this shawl required symmetry, so the border for the second half is knitted on from the final tip and back toward the centre -- but you never break the yarn. So it is a one-piece knit.
B Walker’s modified k2tog-tbl is a godsend. (Explained in pattern.)
