The pattern for the Seaside Shawlette is now available for sale on Ravelry, here.
This shawlette can be knit from one 100-gram skein of sock yarn and when blocked measures approximately 56” across the top (wingspan) and 25” down the center back.
This pattern is perfect for a beginner knitter who wants to knit lace. The pattern is written in great detail and spells out everything you need to know. The lace is charted in 4 relatively simple charts that are easy to follow.
It is knit from fingering rather than laceweight yarn, which is much easier for a lace newbie to execute. The stitches used are knit and purl, and a few simple lace techniques – yarnover, knit 2 together, and ssk, and sl1 k2tog, psso (which are explained in the pattern).
And now I’m working on another shawlette, this one yet to be named.
The yarn is Madelinetosh Tosh Sock in the “Oak B” colorway, on a U.S. size 6 needle.
