This is not a beginner pattern. You will need to have intermediate to advanced knitting skills.

This pattern was knit with one cake of Caron Cakes yarn. The pattern, as written, takes advantage of the long colour changes and (here is a caution) may need to be adjusted by a row or two if the colour changes don’t match the cake that I used. I have found that most of the cakes have similar starting points and, the pattern as is, will be close to what you have. I have added notes to make the differences easier to manage. The shawl has eight different designs in lace or textured stitches to showcase your knitting skills. None of the patterns are difficult but you will start with a basic stitch and become more challenged by the design at each change.

Size: 163cm x 74cm or 64” x 29” blocked

All instructions are written, no charts and no videos.

I used a 6mm or US10 circular needle to hold all of the stitches at the end. The shawl starts with a few stitches and increases on one side of every second row to make a triangle on its side.

The edging is a simple yarn over and slip at the beginning of each row with the two “stitches” knit together on the return row to make a braided looking edge.

I have added a couple of clarifications in the comments if you are having trouble with the first few rows and will have an amended pattern out shortly.

Have fun with my pattern and, as always, questions to my Ravelry message box are welcome. Please remember that I cannot see your knitting or where you are making a mistake. I will try to help you as much as I can but you may want to ask an experienced knitter to help you in person.
