ERRATA: (June 24, 2016)

A correction to the pattern, page 3, for the increase row for fingering weight. it should read:

Increase Row FIngering-weight: K1, p1, k1, p1, k1, SM, k1, kfb, k3 4 times, kfb, k2 49 times, kfb, k3 4 times, kfb, k1, SM, k1, p1, k1, p1, k1. (250 stitches on your needle)

The change is in bold text. It previously read 24 times. That was a typo. It should be 4 times.

The latest version of the pattern is v3.5.

ERRATA: (June 22, 2016)

A correction to the pattern is here:

On the Florentine Scallop Section, Row 3, it should read:

k1, p1, k1, p1, k1, SM, k2tog 4 times, * yo, k1 8 times, k2tog 8 times. Repeat from * until 16 stitches from the marker; yo, k1 8 times, k2tog 4 times, SM, k1, p1, k1, p1 k1.

I’ll update the pattern today and it will be sent out as v3.0

Sorry about that!! Kate

May 26/16: I’ve updated the pattern today to include instructions for Fingering Weight Yarn. Reminder: the pattern will be $4 starting June 1st.

An informal KAL has been started on our forum HERE. I’ll be posting hints and tricks and things to look out for, as well as answering any questions you might have.

Fingering weight version takes approx. 700 yards. Gauge in stockinette stitch is 21sts=4”

May is my birthday month (today actually!) and so as a special treat I’m offering this pattern for free for the whole month. On June 1st it will be listed at $4.00US.

Silk Road is a pattern that I have been working on for almost two years, mainly when I’ve been travelling. Lace is such an easy thing to pack. I started it in Italy, worked on it in China and Southeast Asia and did my final test knit cruising around South America. It’s gotten around!

This is knit with a lightweight lace yarn. It’s soft, light and diaphanous, perfect for summertime.

There are four different stitch patterns used in the wrap: Garter Stitch, Seed Stitch, Roman Stripe Stitch, and a Florentine Scallop Stitch. Included in the pattern is a description of each of these patterns.

The wrap is sewn together along the top seam to wear like a poncho. It stays in place and floats like a cloud.

Finished, blocked measurements are 60” by 20”
