Elizabeth Lace Scarf and Shawl Knit Along

Let's knit lace, together! Join us, for the Elizabeth Shawl Knit Along, a lace beauty constructed as two panels and invisibly joined. Elizabeth may be knitted as a little crossover scarf with only one skein of Manos Silk Blend yarn or the generous rectangular shawl using a few skeins more. You’ll just love the lustre, drape and feel of Silk Blend yarn. 

Available in 46 semi-sold and space-dyed shades, your hardest choice will be choosing a yarn color.

A little about lace knitting:

Afraid you can’t do lace? Think it’s way over your head? Not so. I'll show you how to knit two stitches together, yarn over, slip a stitch, and pass that slip stitch over. That's all you need to know to create this lace scarf/shawl project.

Knitting Doctor Tip: Why not start with the smaller scarf to learn the techniques and then move on to the full blown shawl.

There will be something for everyone in this knit along. I'll provide a tutorial format with lots of images and step-by-step instruction to guide you through this project. 

As usual, there will also be Knitting Doctor Tips for a no-fear knitting experience. The lace pattern will be written, but I’m also going to throw in a chart and let you dip your toes into the chart-reading waters. Chart reading will be totally optional, but an excellent time to give it a try.  

Bonus Day: There will be an extra session devoted to the Kitchener stitch and knit blocking.  I’ll be covering the how, when, and why for both techniques.

Choose either the scarf or shawl version.

Scarf Version measures: 7 x 36" (shown in color, Wisteria)

Shawl Version measures: 17 x 76" (shown in color, Olivewood)
