This pattern is an adaptation of a tablecloth design by Herbert Niebling. It was originally published in 1952 in Frau und Mutter Verlag Wien, Kunstricken, and the original pamphlet is out of print. I have charted it with my adaptations, and in color, to make the pattern a large circular shawl. My sample shawl was knit on size 2 needles, using 2750 yards of Coloumart Cashmere/Merino 1/20NM singles, three strands together, so a lace weight yarn, yielding a 75” diameter shawl. The pattern has 251 rounds, with the option of a simpler border, 231 rounds..
There are general written directions and a fully charted pattern, but no line by line written out directions. The chart is color coded, but can be printed in black and white if one prefers. The chart has only been test-knitted by me, so please let me know if you find errors.
About 3000 yards of any lace weight yarn would be appropriate, as long as it gives good stitch definition.
Happy knitting!
Update: includes three border options and the charts are no longer blurry.
