Additional Information

Description

SUPPLIES & TOOLS:

  • Lion Brand® Pound Of Love®: Antique White, 1 ball, or color of your choice
  • Lion Brand® crochet hook size H-8 (5 mm)
  • Lion Brand® stitch markers
  • Lion Brand® large-eyed blunt needle
  • Circular knitting needle size 8 (5 mm), 29" (73.5 cm) long
  • Tape measure
  • Scissors

    • SIZE:
    • 29" (73.5 cm) at longest point x 56" (142 cm) wide

    • GAUGE:
    • 18 sts = about 4" (10 cm) in pattern.
EXACT GAUGE IS NOT ESSENTIAL TO THIS PROJECT.

    • NOTES:
    • Place markers as instructed on Row 3 to mark the center st. On following rows, slip markers each time you come to them.
    • Shawl begins at center back neck and is shaped by working yarn over (yo) increases.
    • A yarn over creates a new loop on your needle and is worked by wrapping the yarn around your right hand needle. Do not use an existing st to make a yarn over. The finished yarn over will leave an open space (like an eyelet) in your knitting—that is part of this design.
    • 2 sts at the beginning and end of every row are always knit.
    • A series of yarn overs and k2togs are worked on Row 9 to create the eyelet pattern.
    • A circular needle is used to accommodate the large number of sts. Work back and forth on the circular needle as if working on straight needles.

    • DIRECTIONS:

    • Cast on 5 sts.
Row 1: (RS) K2, yo, k1, yo, k2 – 7 sts at the end of this row.
Row 2: K2, yo, p1, k1, p1, yo, k2 – 9 sts at the end of this row.
