Mary Mary Shawl

Pin this free knit shawl pattern!

Even though this is not quite the shawl I sat down to make {you can read more about that HERE}, I do really enjoy it. Theres just something about the offset eyelets of this fabric. It has a very traditional feel but in a ‘doesn’t take itself too seriously’ kind of way. *gasp* I just had a thought– I so so so hope one of you darling, fabulous knitters makes this in a gorgeous halo-y cream. Something like-  Berroco Folio, 4502 – Orr” rel=”noopener noreferrer”>Berroco Folio….  Ooo that would be lovely. Yes, I would really love to see this in a solid or tonal yarn. Tag me or the shawl in your pictures so I can see. #marymaryshawl

A knit pattern, by Rebecca Velasquez

YARN: Fingering weight (#1 superfine), 440 yds [402 m]; Shown: Malabrigo Sock yarn (850 – Archangel)” rel=”noopener noreferrer”>Malabrigo, Sock  100% wool; 440 yds [402 m], 3.53 oz [100 g]: 850 Archangel; 1 skein

NEEDLES: US 7, [4.5 mm] 22″ [56 cm] circular needle; circular needle is used to accommodate large number of sts. For this project, I used my super-pointy ChiaoGoo TWIST Red Lace Interchangeables” rel=”noopener noreferrer”>ChiaoGoo Twist Red Lace Interchangeable Set

NOTIONS: Tapestry needle, tape measure; for blocking, I use & recommend: “>blocking mats, Take it Personally Knit & Lace Blocking Wires Kit” rel=”noopener noreferrer”>wires and Dritz 44008 Decorating T-Pins, 2-Inch, 100 Pieces Per Pack” rel=”noopener noreferrer”>pins


GAUGE: Exact gauge is not crucial; to achieve measurements shown- 18 sts and 28 rows = 4″ [10 cm] in stitch pattern

FINISHED MEASUREMENTS: 67 ½” [171.5 cm] wingspan x 28” [71 cm] deep at center

PROJECT LEVEL: Easy, confident beginner

TECHNIQUES USED: cast on, k, p, yo, k2tog, stretchy bind off method of your choice

ABBREVIATIONS:

K- knit

K2tog- knit 2 together

P- purl

Yo- yarn over

NOTES:

  • Shawl is made from center point to tips.
  • Stitched back and forth, in rows.
  • For a tidy edge, slip the first stitch of every row knitwise rather than knitting the stitch; k2 becomes- sl 1 kwise, k1

Continue in pattern repeat until approx 45yds [42 m] remain, or size desired.

Note: As I neared the end of my yarn ball, I began to weigh it after every row to stay aware of the amount being used. On the last repeat, the rows were 1g each. With 10g remaining, I began the final rows.

FINISHING

Knit 4 rows, bind off using a stretchy method.

To achieve size shown, wet block to measurements. Weave in all loose ends.
