The Waves Collection is a group of 6 patterns from 3 different designers known for their beautiful shawl designs.
Portinscale is an obtuse triangle knit from tip to tip, with a self finishing edge. Sharing some of the same motifs of the larger scale Lingholm shawl, Portinscale proposes a simpler yet similarly elegant scarf option.
The scarf is knit in stockinette lace, with a purl ‘rest row’ between work rows. The pattern is knit from charts.
This pattern assumes you are an intermediate knitter, that you have knit lace before, and know how to knit from a chart. Techniques used in this shawl include:
• Gathered stitches
• Directional decreases
• Picking up stitches
