Get ready, get set for a new knitalong!
This January, let’s chime in the New Year together and work our way through the Pata Shawl, designed by Francoise Danoy. The sample below is made with Plymouth Baby Alpaca Lace, which you can learn about on AnniesYarnShop.com by clicking here. We also suggest that you consider Plymouth Linaza if the idea of linen excites you.
Pata Shawl, Designed by Francoise Danoy, Creative Knitting Spring 2016
This shawl doesn’t overwhelm with allover lace, but instead eases you in with stockinette sections flanked by simple eyelet rows to give you a little “taste of lace.”
What You’ll Learn
- How to knit an eyelet
- How to work a centered double decrease
- How to increase, decrease and create a yarn over
Also… get your questions answered by the designer! Francoise will be kicking things off once we get started, and she will guide you along the way and empower you to successfully start and finish your shawl.
