SPREAD the LOVE I’m feeling the winter doldrums and want to spread a little cheer and love. 50% off all my patterns!!
Followill is a lace shawl, knit in one piece from the center-top outward. With both charts and written instructions, knitters are able to choose the most comfortable way to follow the pattern. It can be easily customized by changing the number of repeats of charts 2 and/or 3.
I am very much into fingering weight shawls to add to my outfits each day but wanted a pattern that would look great both as a fancy fingering weight shawl and as a more rustic worsted weight shawl for warmth in the colder months. This pattern allows you to have the best of both worlds.
Approximately 450 yards of fingering weight yarn -Testers used anywhere from 410 to 476 yards, depending on gauge
Approximately 525 yards of single ply worsted weight yarn - Testers used anywhere from 480 to 610 yards, depending on gauge
Fingering Weight: 50” by 24”

Exact gauge is not important. However, a looser gauge will result in the use of more yardage.

1 size 10 (4.0mm), 24-inch circular or longer if preferred for worsted weight
