Hartfield by Ann Kingstone Designs
Appearances can be deceptive! This shawl involves neither sewing, nor grafting, nor ‘short rows’, nor knitting-on; the whole project, centre and edgings, is knitted in one piece from one end to the other. And every alternate row is purled plain! Gently curving from chest to hips the shawl gradually increases from a small cast-on to the full back depth and then decreases back again to a small cast-off. Shapely, elegant, simple!
The main lace pattern is adapted from Shetland ‘rose lace’, and the leaf edging is of Ann's own devising. The pattern is mostly charted with simple and clear written instructions on how to follow the charts. Blocking instructions are included with an accompanying diagram showing relevant measurements. (Final size is 190cm/78” along the top edge, by 65cm/25” at the deepest point).This uses lace weight yarn.
