White Snows of Winter
A mystery KAL that will start August 3, 2013 and run through early October of 2013. Clues will be published every 2 weeks. The initial pattern includes the swatch chart, general pattern information and yardage estimates.
The KAL thread is HERE.
White Snows of Winter is a full sized lace shawl that is a stylized representation of a snowflake. The main pattern is repeated to create the symmetry.
The full snowflake consists of 16 repeats of the main pattern worked in the round. For a partial snowflake, 8 to 16 repeats of the main pattern can be worked flat.
All patterning is on the right side rows/rounds, every other row/round is a rest row/round. No two pattern rows/rounds are the same except for a few in the first clue and in the final clue for the extra large size.
There are four sizing options; small, medium, large, and extra large. The small has 170 rounds/rows (4 clues), the medium has 204 rounds/rows (5 clues), the large has 240 rounds/rows (6 clues), and the extra large has 264 rounds/rows (7 clues).
A note on required yardage.
The yardage estimates are all based on my original swatches. I have a tendency to knit lace rather loosely and block severely.
The pattern includes a swatch chart, which should come out to about 6 inches wide and 3 inches tall (not counting the framing stitches).
