A lace shawl knitting kit combining the skill and expertise of Heirloom Knitting and Renaissance Dyeing. The fine feathering in the border is inspired and enhanced by the choice of shades in our naturally dyed Indigo range.
Level *** For a fairly experienced knitter.
Needles: UK 10 / 3.35 mm / US circular needle - 30 ins / 80 cm long
Dimensions: approx 54 ins / 137 cm square
Undressed Tension is 3.25 ins x 1.25 ins / 83 mm x 32.5 mm over garter stitch 20 sts. x 20 rows with 3.25 mm needle.
The shawl is made using an invisible cast on for the centre square and the borders are knitted from it as an expanding 'circle' knitting outwards. There are no seams in this method of construction. However instructions are included for flat knitting this design with regular needles if preferred. Full written instructions are given as well as charts, making it a good first lace knitting project.
The Indigo Kit includes:
A 250m hank of Mid Navy, 1008.
The pattern needs to be bought direct from Sharon Miller.
