unikatissima's Lace Winter Rose
This year you find here on the 24 days of Advent the instructions for a shawl that is symmetrically patterned lengthwise.
The patterns comprises amongst others net lace, leaf lace and diamond lace parts which I combined to a harmonious pattern.
The repeat of 24 stitches allows you to decide on the width of your shawl by simply knitting more or less repeats.
You can also adapt the length because there will be a lengthening pattern in the middle for you to lengthen the shawl should you like to. On day 12 you will learn more about this.
And as always: shouldn't you need a shawl make simply a table runner from :)
The photo gives you an idea about your shawl (hopefully ;-)) without spoiling the surprise.
(And if you should be curious: there are more pictures ;-))
Note: at ravelry you can find the group unikatissima
where you can discuss this pattern and my other patterns, too and where you can
show us your wip
(work in progress).
You can register at ravelry with your username and a valid email address only, with all other information about you it's up to you whether you give them (at least it was like this when I registered ;-)).
About the pattern:
- The shawl has this year
a lengthwise symmetrical pattern with net lace, leaf lace and diamond lace parts,
a 24 stitches repeat which allows you to knit the shawl as wide as you like and
a lengthening pattern that you can knit in the middle of the shawl as often as you like to adapt the length of the shawl to your liking. You will learn more about this on day 12.
- The pattern
is a multiple of 24 pattern stitches + 3 start/end stitches + 2 or more edge stitches,
has total 434 rows without lengthening patterns.
The lengthening pattern has 24 rows and will be knitted after day 12 if necessary. You will learn more about this on day 12.
The daily instructions contain each as well charts as written instructions.
- To knit the shawl you need
yarn with needles in appropriate size (the shawl looks as beautiful knitted in lace yarn as in fingering or bulkier yarn),
know-how about knitting yarn overs and different decreases and
if you like stitch markers to mark the repeats.
- If you want to make the shawl
broader/narrower simply adjust the number of repeats;
- use smaller needle sizes and/or
- finer yarn and/or
- knit less loose;
- knit one or more lengthening patterns after day 12 and/or
- use larger needles and/or
- bulkier yarn and/or
- knit more loose.
About the finished item:
Please bear in mind: the size always depends on your gauge and also on the way you knit - I'm always knitting very loosely.
For my shawl I used
without lengthening pattern
with about 605 m turquoise Vendita cotton yarn (50 g have about 115 m)
with 4 mm needles to
a total of 33418 stitches and
got a shawl of about 15,7" x 63" (this are about 40 x 160 cm).
I knitted the daily pattern parts in a little bit more than 30 min.
The cotton yarn is from the so-called Vendita Frühlingssortiment (Vendita Spring kit) and I don't find it soo suitable for Advent, but I knitted the shawl in fact in Spring :)
