Sanguinella is a shawl as romantic as the sunset. Inspired by the color of the yarn, which reminds me of sunsets on snow covered mountains and its namesake, my favorite oranges. When the sun sets, the mountain top snow glitters and shines in a myriad of colors, sparkling like diamonds. and the last rays of sunlight dance and reflect over the mountain tops sending beams into the sky.

Errata: Border pattern row 11 should read: k, k2tog (yo from previous row and next st, this is the first sts for your border lace pattern), then work border pattern starting with st 2.

  • Lace patterning starts at intervals and expands into the main stockinette body of the shawl like mountains rising from a valley below.

  • This crescent shaped shawl is worked in one piece from the top edge, with increases worked along the border, and uses just one skein of most sock yarns.

  • The relative sturdiness of the top edge is what gives the shawl its shape and allows the lace pattern to retain some of the texture even after blocking.


Yarn: 1 skein Malabrigo Sock (Fingering Weight Yarn) shown in ‘Archangel’, (440 yds/3.5 oz/ 402 mtr Superwash Merino wool) or 440-480 yds (400-440 mtr) fingering weight yarn

US Size 6 (4 mm) circular, 24” minimum (60 cm). (Since every knitter is different, use appropriate size needle for your tension and yarn used)

20 st = 4” over stockinette stitch after blocking. Gauge is not critical, but will affect yardage and overall size.

Notions: 10-12 removable stitch markers, T-pins and/or lace blocking wires for blocking

Finished Size:
60” (152 cm) wingspan, by 25 “ (64 cm) center back, relaxed after blocking

Skills Needed:
Intermediate Lace knitting, various versions of directional increases and decreases (such as m5, s2kp, sk2p, s2pp2, p2tog tbl, etc).

Border pattern is worked on both right and wrong sides of work.
