Lingonberry Shawlette

The first knitting pattern I’ve ever designed – born of the need to teach a Continental knitting course. I wanted a pattern that used one skein of fingering-weight yarn and that started with regular stockinette stitch before getting into a lace pattern. This pattern may be used for free. It can be found wither below, or if you are a member of Ravelry.com, you can download the pdf there or right here: download now

MATERIALS
• Approx 330 yards of Handmaiden Casbah or other fingering weight yarn.
• Needles: 4mm 24” or longer circular needles. I also use a 6mm needle to bind off.
• Gauge: 20 stitches and 30 rows = 4”, although gauge is not crucial for this pattern.
• Finished measurements: approx. 54” wide and 20” long at center.
• Notions: tapestry needle, stitch marker(s)

ABBREVIATIONS
cs = center stitch
k = knit
k2tog = knit two together
p = purl
RS = right side
sl1 k2tog psso = slip one stitch, knit the next two stitches together, pass the first stitch over the stitch that you just knit
ssk = slip two stitches so that right leg is in back of needle
and knit them together as one stitch
WS = wrong side
yo = yarn over
INSTRUCTIONS
• Cast on 3 stitches.
• Knit 6 rows as garter stitch.
• Pick up and knit 3 stitches from the long edge, and 3 stitches from the cast-on edge. (9 stitches)
