Blown Glass Shawl Pattern
Blown Glass is the third pattern in the Glass Collection of short row-centric patterns, it utilises the same techniques as found in the Stained Glass Shawlette to new effect. Blown Glass includes the addition of a border, where you pick up and work back and forth with short rows to create the waves, meaning that you'll never be working on a section with more than 170 sts, whilst still making a large shawl. Finished dimensions are 150cm ( 60") wide and 50cm (20") deep.
This design uses cables for the border with purl stitches in between that are then dropped. The rest of the shawl is knitted in short rows and as such it is recommended that you are comfortable with working them, specifically German short rows, which are the suggested method (there is a link to a tutorial and an overview of the technique in the pattern). However once you settle into the pattern, the flow is very intuitive and a fun knit.
