Puddle Jumping Shawl

I have slowly been working my way through a pile of designs sitting on my desk waiting for patterns to be written. And, yay! Managed to knock out another one.

Here is the Puddle Jumping Shawl.


The lovely folks at Lorna’s Laces needed a sample knit up in the Christmas at Downton colorway.  I volunteered to come up with a new design.


This is what I came up with.  Using Lorna’s Laces Pearl, a most delightful silk and bamboo blend.


The shawl is knit from the top out to the bottom edge, combining stockinette stitch with a simple eyelet lace pattern.


The wraps in the lace pattern help break up any potential color pooling.  Perfect for variegated yarns!


The pattern is written up for three sizes of wrap — scarf, shawlette, and full shawl.  The sample is shown in the middle size.  (The pattern is slightly different than shown in terms of how many repeats of the openwork are in each section in order to make it easier to read for all sizes.)

    Debbie, I am attempting to enlarge one of your baby blanket patters, All About Aran from 60 Quick Baby Blanket I purchased. I cast on 20 more stitches, as the instructions show 120 and ten 140 for a larger baby blanket, thinking a 20 or a multiple of 20 stitches would do the trick, but it is not. Can you given me the instructions to make the pattern bigger?

      You should be able to just add 20 sts as you planned and follow the increase instructions in the set up row over those new sts as well to increase the size of the blanket.
