Released at Fibre Flurry 2011: This pumpkin vine inspired shawl is formed from three identical triangular panels worked from the top-down, with eyelet increases. The hem combines a mist drops pattern with Estonian lace techniques and is made denser by changing from a 5 ply to an aran yarn. The shawl could alternatively be knit entirely in 5ply or lighter for a larger and more ethereal garment. Instructions are charted with full written explanation. This pattern is rated as moderately easy, as it contains a large portion of stocking stitch and most wrong side rows are worked as the stitches present. Some concentration is required for the lace edging. Additional skills required are: provisional cast-on, double and treble yarn-overs, right twists.

Long (120cm) 4mm circular needles or as required to achieve the tension
100g/ 262m Adore by Sweet Clement (shown in Maple)
100g/ 280m Rowan Kid Classic (shown in Dark Orange shade 827)
At least 3 stitch markers (to fully demarcate all the pattern repeats 21st markers are needed but these are not a necessity)
4 stiff lace wires and at least 52 pins

21st x 28r = 10cm/ 4 inches over stocking stitch pre-blocking (15st = 10cm/ 4 inches over stocking stitch after-blocking)
Achieving exact tension is not vital but will affect the amount of yarn used and the final size of the garment.

One Size. 137cm (54”) span by 81cm (32”) deep.
