Spring in Central Park -- Instant Download
By Fickle Knitter Design
The Spring in Central Park was written exclusively for Baah Yarn and we’ll be hosting a KAL in the Fickle Knitter Design Group on Ravelry from December 1, 2013-December 22, 2013! If you missed out on the kit, don’t worry. You can now purchase the pattern online and knit along with stash yarn.
Spring in Central Park is traditional triangle shawl knit from the neck to the long edge. The shawl has a knit-on border which means it’s not necessary to bind off 265+ stitches at once! The bold knit-on edging is worked back and forth over 28 stitches and a ssk with the main body stitches every other row eliminates the large bind off stitch by stitch. This is a great shawl for beginning-intermediate Lace Knitters.
If you have a question while knitting please join the Fickle Knitter Design ravelry group for help. This is a great shawl for beginning-intermediate Lace Knitters, if you can knit, purl, yarn over, k2tog, ssk, ktbl, sk2p, and work a short row you can knit this shawl! If you get stuck please visit the Fickle Knitter rav group or email me at firstname.lastname@example.org for help.
What’s unique about Spring in Central Park is although it’s knit using a traditional triangle technique the shawl is longer than it is deep, giving it a crescent shape.
Yarn substitution may result in a change in estimated yardage, gauge and finished size of your individual project.
A note about Gauge
Are you a tight knitter or a loose knitter? If you are a loose knitter please consider going down a few needle sizes. If you are a tight knitter you may have to go up a few sizes to get gauge. Your swatch should be stretched after you’ve soaked it in water and then pinned it out to make it wider to dry, just as you would with the finished shawl.
This quick-to-knit triangle lace shawl is simple and elegant with its lovely, knit-on lace edging.
