Inspired by family vacations to Cape Cod, Mashpee is top down crescent shaped one-skein shawlette.

The simple garter stitch body is worked first; perfect for working in the car or on the beach. Then the knitted-on lace edging provides just enough interest to keep you engaged while relaxing back at the beach rental when the house is quiet.

  • Perfect for a Weekend Getaway

  • Want to make the Mashpee Shawlette bigger or use handspun yarn, the pattern was updated on 6/10/2015 to add information on how to customize to fit your yarn. See project page for Mashpee Shawlette {sport weight).

  • The Verdant Gryphon Bugga! using US 6/4.0mm

The shawl is worked from the top-down in garter stitch. The lace edge is knitted-on to the live stitches of the garter stitch body.

Skill Level: Advance Beginner/Intermediate
Finished Measurements: About 70” wide and 12” deep (blocked)

Don’t play “yarn chicken” on the edging, TAKE TIME TO CHECK GAUGE.
