A beautiful effect for a lot less work. This simple reversible shawlette is knit from side to side. With a garter stitch body and a gabled lace edging that is knit right on as you go along. There is no picking up stitches, there are no 500 stitch rows. In fact for the version I worked, the very longest row was only 110 stitches!
The garter stitch blocks out beautifully, and the simple yet elegant lace edging has a lot of impact due to the double yarnovers. And you begin this gorgeous piece of lace by only casting on 2 stitches. Even better, when all is said and done you only have 2 stitches remaining to cast off.
Perfect for that one of a kind sock yarn that you just can’t bear to make socks with, this shawlette will work with many different yarn weights. Just make sure to use a big enough needle for drape!
