July 2013 - the PDF download supercedes the version of the pattern included in Knitty First Fall 2012. Both are correct, but you should either follow instructions and charts included on the PDF, OR follow charts and instructions from Knitty (don’t mix up the two). Both will result in the same beautiful finished product! If you are working from the print book Handmade in the UK, download the current PDF, as there was an error in chart G that has been corrected.
Note: this pattern includes charted lace instructions only, the chart is not written out.
ESTUARY - description
An estuary is a fertile place, a junction between riverine and ocean habitats, where the mixing of fresh and salt water creates a gradated ecosystem which nurtures thousands of species.
Estuary is an in-between, watery piece of lace that inhabits the space in between scarf and shawl. If you object to the grandma-ish shape of a triangular shawl, this could be a perfect accessory for you.
Knit in one piece from end to end, Estuary features two lace stitch patterns of my own design. The pattern includes simple instructions for how to adjust the sizing to achieve a larger or smaller or longer finished piece, or work the pattern in heavier or finer yarns.
