Shades of Summer Knitalong

Knitting
May 2014
Lace / 2 ply ?
21 stitches and 32 rows = 4 inches in Garter stitch
US 4 - 3.5 mm
510 yards (466 m)
one size: 18” at deepest point and 66” from tip to tip/46cm x 168cm (adjustable)

The knitalong begins on June 1 and continues through Labor Day. Cashmere 1 is the perfect yarn to knit with in summer, because it is light as a feather. But you can use any Artyarns yarn for this knitalong. YOU MUST USE ARTYARNS YARN TO PARTICIPATE. In order to participate, hit “cast on” and add a photo of the Artyarns yarn you are using. This should not be a photo taken from the internet, but your own photo of your own yarn. On or about June 1 you will receive Part 1 by Ravelry Private Message. After you complete Part 1, you will post a photo, and I will send you Part 2, and so on. There is no deadline for finishing, just a deadline for posting the first part (by the end of August). I hope you join me.

ATTENTION TIGHT KNITTERS: If you have made things in the past that came out smaller than intended, chances are you are a tight knitter. I highly recommend working this shawl 2-stranded with larger needles, or using a heavier yarn like Ensemble Light or Cashmere Sock Yarn or Cashmere Glitter. Then you can go up a needle size to use size 6 or 7 US, with the heavier yarn.
