Aisling Shawl - a knitting pattern
The shawl begins at the center and is worked outwards to border. There are two yarn-over increases in every row which create a long banana-like shape. The shawl is worked in Stockinette stitch with eyelets, which resemble raindrops, interrupted by Garter stripes. The lacy cabled border is worked sideways at the end and attached to the body by means of simple decreases and slipped stitches.
The sample shawl is worked in two contrasting colors but would look equally beautiful when knit in just one.
One: approx. 200 cm/80” wide and 50 cm/20” long at center.
2 skeins (one of each color) of Eden Cottage Yarns Titus 4ply (70% merino wool, 30% silk; 400m/436y per 100g). Sample made in colors CC1 - Rambling Rose and CC2 - Ice.
3.5 mm/US #4 circular needle (100 cm/40” long).
2 stitch markers, tapestry needle for weaving.
22 sts and 28 rows = 10 cm/4” in St st measured flat after wet blocking.
Additional working gauge: 24 sts and 30 rows = 10 cm/4” in St st measured flat before wet blocking.
The gauge isn’t crucial on this project, but differences will affect the finished size as well as the required yardage.
