The DK Windowpanes pattern is now availableand is presented in Parts 1-7 to facilitate KALS, knitting workshops, lessons and classes in Knitting Texture.
The pattern is written in worsted weight although the design is well suited for a variety of yarn weights -- from fingering, sport, dk to the worsted weight. Recommend that needle and gauge be relative to the yarn of choice with consideration given to increasing needle size by either .5mm or 1.0mm to desired drape of knitted fabric with textures. For best results and desired gauge, swatching is highly recommended as each yarn fibre is different and yarn blends vary greatly.

Yarn is available through

Welcome to the DK Windowpanes KAL
Join the fun and cast on!

The KAL starts June 1st so all you need to do is

DK Windowpanes is a textured shawl, triangle shape, knit flat, in one-colour or in a 3-colour combination. Both colour options create a beautiful textured shawl featuring horizontal and vertical contours. The 3-colour combination utilizes colour to further enhance the textured stitches. The pattern is recommended for intermediate level and the instructions are provided in written format as well as chart format …… so one gets to choose which format works best for you!

Note: The DK Windowpanes Shawl design is versatile, well suited for a variety of yarn weights, so consider your stash and give consideration to needle size for an appropriate gauge for your chosen yarn weight. If you have questions, please ask.

The shawl size/measurements may be customized, by a decrease or increase in the number of repeats; with an appropriate provision for additional yarn requirements when up-sizing.
