The shawl so nice I knit it twice.
This is the same pattern as the green shawlette I showed in my last blog entry. That one was knit with approximately 400 yards fingering weight yarn (Madelinetosh Tosh Sock in the “jade” colorway) on a U.S. size 3 needle. This one is knit with approximately 350 yards of sport weight yarn (Madelinetosh Pashmina in the “Bark” colorway) on a U.S. size 5 needle.
The construction (short rows in the center section, etc.) and lace pattern are the same, but the number of stitches and rows worked differ because of the difference in the weight of the yarn. The finished size of the sport weight shawlette, however, is the same as the fingering weight version.
I’ll have the pattern ready for sale in a couple of days. It’ll have complete instructions for working both versions, as well as instructions for knitting by number of repeats, as well as knitting by the weight of your skein of yarn. So if you have a larger skein, you can knit a larger wrap. Smaller skein, smaller wrap.
I’ve named the design “Sheldon and Leonard.” Sheldon is the fingering weight version, Leonard is the sport weight version.
“I think I like Leonard.”
