Hold on to the soft light of early fall afternoons, warm your hands on a cup of tea and wrap your self in comfort. Hazy colors, you walk the winding paths between the last flowers in your garden as a gentle breeze carries the sound of buzzing bees and the scent of lavender over to where you enjoy the warming rays of the afternoon sun.

Top down shawl knit in fingering weight yarn.
Finished size: 60”/155 cm wingspan and 25”/65 cm center back.
(This is the main size, there are 2 spots where it can be made smaller)

Written and Charted instructions.

Please read: This is probably the easiest (technically speaking) to knit shawl I designed this year. The texture is a little more substantial (we are going towards the colder days, you know) and less ethereal than some of my other popular designs. There are easy to work lace sections and color & textural details. Don’t be intimidated if you are newer to lace knitting, this is a mild one compared to some of my other patterns :)

Skills required: Provisional cast on (tutorial), k, p, k2tog, ssk, yo, s2kpsso, working stitches tbl, Bind off.

This pattern was first released as a ’pick your own mystery’ MKAL in September 2013.

Yarn: Fingering weight

Color A: 400yds / 366m
Color B: 120yds / 110m
Color C: 210yds / 192m

Needles: US 6 / 4mm circular, 32” min
Needle one size larger for some of the patterns used
spare circular needle for Provisional cast on

Gauge: Approx 20 sts = 4”/10cm over stockinette st after blocking
Gauge for this project is approximate

Beads (optional):
light beading – beads only in the Set Up Chart and along the bottom lace border: approx. 260 beads.(this is what I did and love it)
Full beading – beads in all the main sections of the shawl: approx. 930 beads
This shawl will look lovely with or without beads.

Please use the pick your own mystery MKAL picture as the first photo on your project page so as not to spoil it for others :)
