New Shawl Pattern from The Knit Cafe

We have just published our latest pattern to Ravelry. It is called “There’s No Place Like Home”. You can find it HERE

there's no place like home

This project was designed for The Knit Cafe’s Yarn Club and was knit in a custom made colour just for yarn club members. The colour is dyed by the fabulous hand dyer Lichen and Lace. The colour is called “Emerald City” so of course we had to name this shawlette after Dorothy’s most famous line in the Wizzard of Oz, “there’s no place like home”.

The shawl has an interesting construction. First,  it is knit on the bias in an easy open lace stitch. The border stitches are picked up and shaped with short rows into wedges so the corners of the shawl stay pointed and easy to tie.  The whole thing is finished with a flourish in the form of a picot bind off. You can make the whole shawl in one skein of fingering weight if your skein holds 475 yards. If you have less yarn you can make a version without the border which is a lovely kerchief size.

Craftily yours
