Spring Shawl KAL Travelling Vine

Updated: Feb 23

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.

Pattern Notes

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.
