Damask is now available in LARGE size.
- After getting some requests and questions about making Damask into larger size, I have spent some time working out the Large size pattern for Damask. I hope knitters who love making large shawl can enjoy making Damask as well -

I bought this beautiful skein of Malabrigo sock some time ago and I decided to use it to make a shawl. I am really pleased with the outcome of this shawl. It might look very difficult to knit but the lace stitch pattern is just not as hard as you think.

Damask comes in three sizes, Small, Medium and Large. It is knitted from the bottom to top with mostly 4-st decrease on every right side rows.

This pattern provides full instruction in written format as well as charts. You will be guided row by row from the beginning till end.

Shawl shown in photos is a MEDIUM.

Finished Size:
Small shawl 19” deep 40” wide
Medium shawl 23” deep 49” wide
Large shawl 27” deep 58” wide

Skill level: Intermediate

Many many thanks to wonderful
