Inspired by a collection of Japanese lace pattern samples, this unusual shawl can be worn at least seven different ways, depending on how you button it: a wrap, a shawl, a scarf (two ways), a long-sleeved shrug, a cardigan and a waistcoat! As a cardigan or shrug the shawl is worn with 5-15 inches/ 12.5-37.5cm positive ease; three widths and two lengths therefore accommodate a wide range of body types. Knitted back-and-forth from the bottom up in one piece. Pattern is charted with additional information on sizing & finishing/ wearing. Suitable for a moderately skilled knitter with some lace experience.

MATERIALS
Any 4ply yarn containing Stellina, 150g (200: 250)/ 600m (800: 1000) for the short scarf: 200g (250: 300)/ 800m (1000: 1200) for the long scarf (see dimensions & sizing)
1 pair 4.5mm (UK/ US 7) single-point needles or as needed to approximately match tension (for the smallest sizes a tighter tension on 4mm needles is recommended)
7 (7: 8) stitch markers
16 (short scarf) or 20 (long scarf) buttons (1.5-2.5cm/ 0.75-1.25 inch in diameter)
Darning needles

TENSION
14st and 20 rows to 10cm/ 4 inches over Chart A pattern using 4.5mm needles (after blocking). Exact tension is not required but a looser tension is not advised.

DIMENSIONS & SIZING
Pattern is written for small (s) with alterations for the medium (m) and large (l) sizes in parentheses. There are two options on length, short (S) and long (L). The choice of length is made after row 212, with the shorter scarf giving a more flattering cardigan/ waistcoat for 32” busts or smaller but with a subsequent loss in sleeve length if worn as a shrug. It is recommended that you fold & pin a sheet as per the dimensions/ methods of wear (below) to confirm your best fit before commencing knitting.

TO FIT BUST: 30-36 (38-40 42-50)
Blocks to (width) 23.5”/ 58cm (29.5”/ 74cm 35.5”/ 88cm)

S (L) blocks to 140cm/ 56” (200cm/ 80”) long.
