Echinacea Shawl Pattern
The shawl is knit from the top down, and can consist of 2, 3, or 4 triangular sections. Two sections makes a triangular shawl notched at the top to sit on your neck. Three sections makes an enveloping shawl with a square notch at the top. Four sections makes a square shape, open on one of the diagonals, again with a notch at the top.
The approximate stitch count is:
Small (2, 3, 4 sections): 28000, 33000, 44000
Medium (2, 3, 4 sections): 40000, 49000, 66000
Large (2, 3, 4 sections): 53000, 67000, 90000
The yardage estimates for the small 2-section shawl are:
Light lace (~800-1000 yds/100g): 425 yds
Heavy Lace (~600 yds/100g): 625 yds
Fingering weight (~400 yds/100g): 700 yds
