The Okemo Shawlette, the fourth of the Vacation Knits - Vol 1: Summers In New England collection, is inspired by a recent drive up to Vermont which brought us through the town of Ludlow, home of Okemo Mountain Resort.

Okemo is widely known for the beautiful powdered mountains; perfect slopes for skiing. However, the trails are equally breathtaking in Autumn with the brilliant colors of turning leaves.

The shawl is worked from the top-down beginning with a Garter Tab featuring a cable and lace pattern, increasing 4 stitches every RS row. A lacy edging is added at the end to soften the cables.

Skill Level: Advance Beginner/Intermediate
Finished Measurements: About 64” wide and 23” deep (blocked)

Don’t play “yarn chicken” on the edging, TAKE TIME TO CHECK GAUGE or work in contrast color.
