ONE SKEIN WONDER!
These are some of my favorite projects to make. Special, unique, and perfect for using treasured skeins and making gifts.
Venezia is a precious, delicate shawlette, perfect for any single skein of fingering weight yarn. Worked from tip to tip, with a reversible lace pattern and a diamond shape.
It is framed by a gorgeous reversible diamond lace motif, and the main body of the shawl is worked in ribbing.

Common question about slipping the first stitch of the row: You can do it knitwise or purlwise, whatever you like best! As long as you keep consistent throughout the shawl.
My preference: Knitwise with yarn in back.

FINISHED MEASUREMENTS
76½“ (184 cm) long and 16¾ (42 cm) wide at middle point.

MATERIALS
Yarn: 1 skein of Merino Singles by Uschitita (100% Merino; 400y/366m; 100g) or approx. 400y (366m) of fingering weight yarn. The sample was made using colorway Venezia.
This shawl is designed to use up a full skein of yarn in fingering weight, but it can be made using a thicker weight yarn or a skein with more yardage…
I recommend you weigh your yarn before starting your work. At the end of section 3 you should have used slightly under 50% of your total grams, to be sure you can finish the whole pattern.
Needles: US 7 (4.5 mm) needles.
Other notions: Tapestry needle, a split ring st marker, blocking pins or wires.

GAUGE
18 sts and 28 rows in p2/k1tbl ribbing on US 7 (4.5 mm) after blocking.
