Emily Shawl

A fairly simple lace shawl, worked in laceweight yarn. The shawlette size is very wearable; the side-to-side pattern is unusual, and the easy charts require a basic understanding of lace and repeats. A great first shawl project!

  1. This shawl is beautiful, and I’ve selected it as my project in the INtermediate Knitting class I’m taking for the next 6 weeks at a local Arts Center.  However, we (the instructor and I are stymied) by what to do with the stitches at the end of row 20 from chart b (the first go round, and each subsequent working of Chart B).  It is such a beautiful shawl, I really want to make it and so I hope someone can assist.  Thank you!

  2. I’m curious about moving from chart B to chart C in this pattern–the pattern seems off in Row 3 to 5. Am I miss reading the pattern? The yarn overs don’t seem to line up properly. Am I adding the extra stitch in Row 2 in the wrong place? I’m doing it at the beginning of the row as the pattern says, but it seems to make the pattern off to do so. 

  3. I would love to knit this shawl in a larger size and do not know which charts to repeat.  Please advise. (I actually have the same geisha yarn, so I have the whole skein.)
