Because of different personal as well as business related reasons and until further notice, all already self published designs will only be available for sale until 31st July 2017. During this time, I’m offering them 50% off with coupon code SALE50.

The Dicentra Shawl is number three of the Hidden Flowers Collection and tells a story of silvery dewdrops on Bleeding Heart flowers. This sweet little shawl comes with written and charted instructions. There will be additional charts and instructions for a stockinette point edge, a garter point edge, a rounded picot edge, a ruffled edge, and an alternative setup for an all over flower shawl without garter stitch.

Yarn weight: Everything from Lace to DK and a needle size to obtain gauge.

Sample sizes and yardage:

  • nude/pale pink sample: approx. 125 cm / 49.25” wingspan and 34 cm / 13.5” depth, 205 sts body, chart 1 twice, 233.2 m / 255.0 yds in Colour A, 135.8 m / 148.5 yds in Colour B, 370 m / 402 yds total, 131 beads
  • anthracite/blackberry/fjord sample: approx. 140 cm / 55.5” wingspan and 45 cm / 17.75” depth, 211 sts body, chart 1 four times, 162.25 m / 176.9 yds for body and border stripes (double stranded is 324.5 m / 353.7 yds), 352.2 m / 385.1 yds for flower stitch / lace, 515 m / 560 yds total, 247 beads

To be safe, prepare a bit more yardage. The final yardage depends on your chosen size, placement / amount of the flower stitch and knitting tension. The gauge is not so important for this shawl, but use a needle size that gives you a pleasing mesh structure for your yarn. I knit very tight, so if you don’t, you may want to use a scale to check your used yardage regularly. You can find my project details in my project notes on Ravelry (project: “Dicentra” and “Nocturnal Dicentra” by Rahymah).
