Rosemary Knit Lace Shawl Free Pattern Page

Rosemary Knit Lace Shawl Free Pattern Page by Kristin Omdahl

This interesting stitch pattern has a repeat of 5 rows, so by nature of an odd number row-repeat, it is a reversible stitch pattern. There is a different stitch count on each row of the repeat because the number of sts per repeat is heavily decreases on one row, then slowly increased on the following 3rd and 4th rows until you achieve the original stitch count per repeat. It sounds a lot more complicated than it really is, and I included the stitch count for every row of the pattern. The pretty scalloped edge is created by diligently blocking each repeat of the easy picot bind off. Due to the stretchy nature of this elongated stitch pattern, the entire shawl requires only 325 yards of yarn and the generous sized shawl requires only 80 rows! In the realm of lace shawls, this is a relatively quick project. I knit the sample shawl in just one weekend!

This project can be worked in any weight yarn.
