A new knitting pattern is here — Lavandia!
We have three lavender bushes in our garden. Every year, I dry lavender and put it in little sachets. The scent of lavender is said to have a soothing effect, and that’s why I decided to use garter stitch for this shawl. Because what stitch is more soothing?
Thus, this airy summer shawl is made entirely in garter stitch! The lace ribs are squishy and remind me of the stalks of lavender. The fabric is quite stretchy and needs to be blocked for best effect.
I love sideways shawls because they are easy to adjust. Just knit until half of your yarn is gone, then start decreasing. The shallow triangle shape is very versatile — flip it around, knot it in front or at the back or drape it around your shoulders!
My sample: 160cm x 24 / 63in x 9.5in. Size is adjustable.
Yarn / Knitting needle
Worked sideways, this long shallow triangle shawl is easy to adjust. I used a 3.75mm knitting needle and appr. 420 yards of fingering weight yarn.
You can actually use any yarn, but your yardage will be different — knit until you have used up appr. half of your yarn, then start decreasing.
Price: 4.00 € (+ VAT, depending on country)
