Jorjamae is a rectangular sampler shawl designed to honor my mother who passed away in 2014. Her love of life, her contagious smile, and her passion for flowers are what inspired the stitches for the shawl. It’s a great first lace project for the novice knitter, yet interesting enough for those with more experience.

There are two versions of Jorjamae, each utilizing multiple stitches throughout starting with the pretty Fairy Tale Lace.

Version 1: Knit flat in 2 identical halves, utilizing 5 different stitch patterns and then stitched together in the center utilizing a 3-needle bind off. This version used 5 skeins of Malabrigo Silky Merino in Madre Perla, #425, 750 yards.

Version 2: Knit flat in one piece utilizing 5 different stitch patterns. This version used 7 skeins of Malabrigo Silky Merino in Bobby Blue, #27, 1050 yards.

Gauge: 5 stitches per inch in Flower Lace stitch on US 7(4.5mm) needles or size needed to obtain gauge.
