New Oaklet Shawl
July 14: To honour Malala Day, July 14, 2014, today and tomorrow I will donate 50% of Tricksy Knitter pattern sales to the Malala Fund.
My Oaklet Shawl pattern (which is still available) has been so popular that it inspired me to make a guide to making top-down triangular shawls. They have become one of my favourite types of knitting projects; I mean, who doesn’t love a knitting pattern that starts with “cast on 3 stitches”?
This New Oaklet Shawl is the larger, sophisticated, more versatile cousin of the Oaklet. They are very similar, but the pattern has been completely rewritten and is now included in a free instructional ebooklet, so I think it deserves its own entry in Ravelry.
A knitted shawl is a versatile accessory and an excellent beginner knitting project. This lace version is the second pattern in my free ebooklet, Triangular Shawls: a step by step guide. This booklet contains two shawl patterns plus step by step tutorials and tips to everything you’ll need to know to make your shawl.
The finished shawl measures 46” wide by 23” tall (117 cm by 58 cm)
