Chloë Crescent, my first design here on ravelry and the first in a series of three is inspired by my daughter’s cat Chloë, it has been fully tested except for the bicolor-version, which has only been knitted by me.
The pattern has charts as well as written instructions.

Yarn by Karin Iden - Kolibri-creativ would be ideal

Yarn in Katie Pearce’s shop

The help thread for this shawl can be found there too.
Also I am having an (ongoing) pattern-giveaway here:
http://www.ravelry.com/discuss/chloes-crescent-corner/339... , perhaps you are lucky…

The shawl is worked top down with lace, lace knitting, some twisted stitches, easy cables, wrapped stitches, a knitted on border featuring short-rows in the large size.
Skills needed: lace knowledge and twisted stitches also in ws-rows, picking up stitches purlwise, pfb, yo, ssk, k2tog, ssp, p2tog, all those are explained in the pattern as well as some very special stitches.

I published clues on the following days, starting with clue 1, setup:

• clue 1 on 2014-11-10 



• clue 2 on 2014-11-13 



• clue 3 on 2014-11-20 


 



• clue 4 on 2014-11-27

What you’ll need for all sizes:

• Karin Iden has dyed some awesome cattish yarn especially for this KAL, both for the large and the small size, you can see samples here: http://www.ravelry.com/discuss/chloes-crescent-corner/303... and contact her here via pm: http://www.ravelry.com/people/kolibri-creativ, Karin has already sent within Europe as well as to the USA, she also offers the lovely cat-pins that can be seen on the next page.

• I discovered some gorgeous yarn in Katie Pearce’s shop, for knitters in the UK this might be just it: Both Yan Sock, 365m High Twist 4ply-weight as well as Methera Lace, 600m 55% BFL, 45% Silk will be ideal…
• Two short DPN for the border in the size you are using for the shawl.
• One very short DPN or cable needle, slightly smaller than the size you are using for the shawl
• Stitch markers, a whole bunch of them, preferably in different colours. I use scrap yarn and make little loops, which can easily be replaced.

Small shawl: Size at least 120 cm wide, 40 cm high at highest point, just perfect for me, I am a size small = 36/38 in German sizes for shirts, so I am sure after blocking it will easily fit a German size medium = 40/42 as well.

Solid, semi-solid or variegated smooth lace weight/ 3-ply yarn ( 520m - 650m/ 100 gr/ 570 - 715 yards/ 100 grs), 1 skein
32 inch circular in size needed to achieve gauge. I am using size 3,5 mm
Gauge in pattern 24 stitches & 36 rows = 10 cm/ 4 inches
Stitch markers, a whole bunch of them, preferably in different colours

Large shawl: Size at least 180 cm wide, 43 cm high at highest point

Solid, semi-solid or variegated smooth fingering weight yarn ( 365m - 380m/ 100 gr/ 330 - 417 yards/ 100 grs), 2 skeins
32 inch circular in size needed to achieve gauge, I am using 4,5 mm

Gauge in pattern 20 stitches & 30 rows = 10 cm/ 4 inches
___________________________________________________

Chloë Crescent, mein erstes Design in einer Serie von drei, wurde inspiriert durch Chloë, die Katze meiner Tochter, es ist testgestrickt bis auf die zweifarbige Version, welche nur von mir gestrickt wurde.
Das Muster enthält Strickschriften, die aber durch Text ergänzt werden, außerdem gibt es eine voll ausgeschriebene Anleitung.
Die Anleitung war kostenlos mit Code CHLOECRESCENT , bis der MKAL begann.
Das sichelförmige Tuch wird von der oberen Mitte aus gestrickt mit Lace, Lace knitting, verschränkten Maschen, einfachen Zöpfen, Wickelmaschen, einer angestrickten Bordüre, in der großen Größe auch mit verkürzten Reihen.
Benötigte Fertigkeiten: Provisorischer Anschlag, Lace und verschränkte Maschen auch in Rückreihen, Maschen aus der Kante rechts und links aufnehmen, Du kannst aber gerne meiner Gruppe beitreten und so viele Fragen stellen, wie Du magst!
Das fertige Tuch wird ein ideales WeihnachtsgGeschenk sein für einen ganz besonderen Menschen, der wohlmöglich Katzenfreund!
