Spring Shawl KAL The Borders

Free Knitting Pattern


This is the final section and you have a big choice to make here. There are a couple of options for finishing the shawl. All are very pretty but one is definitely 'extra'. I've knitted both the largest and smallest versions and they were both worth the effort, although you need to be aware the Eternal Frill will take a VERY long time to complete. It's stunning but does require dedication. I was bingeing all back seasons of Game of Thrones when I knit the eternal frill at full size (there is a half size option). I ran out of episodes before I had finished the frill!

Pattern Notes

Remember to wrap your yarn twice around the needle when creating a YO followed by a purl stitch.


Do not forget to include the final YO before the stitch marker when following the lace patterns and working the middle round for the increase section.


If you are working the striped version all increases are in C2. If you are working in a solid or long gradient ignore the colour change instructions throughout.

Bind off all sts. Seam the edges of the bell edging with a simple whip stitch and sew in all the loose ends.


FINISHING

Block firmly to create the smooth centre circle. Do not block the Bell Edging as it will loose its shaping.
