Free Knitting Pattern
Welcome to the second part of your new Spring Shawl, the travelling vine. This is the first of the more complex lace patterns. You have already managed a couple of increases so you should be good to go. Remember to use as many stitch markers to separate repeats as you need.
If you need a refresher on how to read knitting charts you can find links out to my mini series of tutorials here.
If you are looking for yarn requirements they are in the overview post, along with links to all the released parts of this KAL.
If you are looking for the paid PDF pattern for this shawl it is now available in the shop.
k2tog knit 2 sts together
yo yarn over
ssk slip knitwise, slip knitwise, knit 2 sts together tbl
tbl through back of loop
Lace patterns used in the main sections are charted and each section has its own charts.
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.

Sharing is Caring
Sharing is caring in everything that we do in our world of yarn. The more you share this event (and others) online, the more people visit the site and you help support me. That is how designers get noticed and it helps to grow reputation for the blogs you enjoy.
I've created some images if you want to use them, all 4 shown below, to share info about the KAL with others. Instagram, facebook and stories sized graphics are ready for you to use.
As we all work through the Spring Shawl KAL 2021 I ask that you use our hashtag to share and make a great gallery of what you are working on.
