When I was a little girl, our family always vacationed in Myrtle Beach, South Carolina. I always loved the way the waves “danced” as they broke onto the shore. While on vacation in Holden Beach, North Carolina, I fell in love with the little waves all over again. Inspired by the waves, the Holden Shawlette is a simple but elegant little shawl. Constructed from the middle of the neck down, this triangular shawlette features an upper stockinette portion with a garter stitch border. The stockinette portion flows into a wavy lace edge and is finished with a picot bind off.
This pattern is perfect for a first lace or shawl project. The lace pattern is easy to memorize. Combined with the stockinette body, this is a perfect project to take on your vacations.
This pattern has both written and charted instructions. Please note that you knit either the written or charted instructions. If you have completed the 38 rows of written instructions, you are now ready to complete the bind off. If you do not work the 38 rows of written instructions, you repeat the chart 2.5 times before binding off.
Knitting skills used in this pattern: picking up stitches, knit 2 stitches together, yarn overs, slip 1, knit 1, pass slipped stitch over, picot bind off.
Pattern now available in French and Hungarian.
