I too just finished Lichen. It took about 4 hours of knitting. This pattern must be blocked. I used Malabrigo worsted on a 10.5 needle. Fast and fun!


Is this pattern free & where can it be found please?

Lichen is not a free pattern. I bought the download on Ravelry. http://www.ravelry.com/patterns/library/lichen-5
Well worth the $6.00. I see lots of X-mas gifts in the future :) :)

Okay you evil people, I have now purchased two more shawl patterns and have a free scarf pattern. So many patterns, so much yarn, so little time! And all because someone posted she wanted a quick and easy shawl pattern.

I'm also looking for a shawl that is pretty, bit not too complicated. I'm going for the afternoon tea, but a little bigger and finished with fan and feathers instead of the branches to get the nice edge.

Very cute pattern - and Congrats on your upcoming wedding! Mine is at 6 pm. Don't want anything too heavy, as the weather is predicted to stay on the warm side. Good luck with yours!


The kudzu shawlette is a very cool design. It was kicking my butt in a few places (I've never knit a shawl before, so... right), but I've got it sorted out. I had to get mostly-cotton yarn (my mom can't tolerate wool next to her skin at all... I can't, either. Fortunately KnitPicks has this awesome cotton modal/acrylic blend that is softer than you could imagine). I gave my mom a scarf about 10 years ago that she loved (store-bought). It was wide & long & soft & warm. She wore it to visit her sister & her sister's Shih-Tzu (spelling?) ripped it up. My mom was devastated. I've been searching for a replacement ever since & never found one. Scarves shrank width-wise so that anything wider automatically was blanket-sized... :( So, now that I knit, I went nuts trying to find a wider scarf (which wasn't a blanket) & didn't really find one, so I went with a shawlette made in a really soft, warm fiber. I think she'll like it & it'll keep her warm. In MA, winters can get fairly cold.
Good luck with your shawl! Even at 6pm, you should be fine with something light, unless they blast the A/C. :)
Thanks... I'm not bothering with a shawl for my wedding. It's at 11:30am (on a Sunday, so it couldn't be too late) and my gown is lined & has cap sleeves (I didn't want to be yet another bride who spends the whole day pulling her dress up), so the A/C would have to be way too high in order for me to have problems. :)

Try Afternoon Tea. It knits up quickly and is free. If you google it you will get the pattern

I don't know if anyone else posted this, couldn't read all the pages (no time), but I have a very easy pattern that looks nice, (not fancy) and I usually make it for a baby blanket when I'm in a rush. I'm sure that you knit a lot faster than I do also, as I usually crochet. You begin with 6 stitches and increase one stitch per row, till you get to the width you want. It is all knit no purl.
You co 6. knit 2 rows, next row,and every row till you get to width you want, k3, yo,knit to end of row
