November 2019: I have been putting out patterns for almost 15 years! Time to make changes.

This pattern is now available for free! If money is tight, this is for you. I intend to keep this pattern free forever.

If you want to/can put some money somewhere, I have a suggestion: The Autism Self Advocacy Network (ASAN). Click the link to learn more!

Who We Are & What We Do
The Autistic Self Advocacy Network is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization run by and for autistic people. ASAN was created to serve as a national grassroots disability rights organization for the autistic community. Make a donation to ASAN here

This project was inspired by something a young Laura Ingalls Wilder might sport in anticipation of spring… Peaks and valleys (or knots and eyelets) make up this pretty and practical shawlette using only 350 yards of fingering weight yarn. Because this project is worked side to side, it is a great way to jump into lace knitting without the casting on or binding off of hundreds of stitches.

Prairie House Shawl is somewhere in between a shawl and a scarf. The shape is an elongated triangle. The pattern is 7 pages.

There was errata in the “center panel” section on patterns purchased before Feb. 27th, 2009. The pattern now is fine!
