Welcome Toni!

PS . This class will start on Thursday morning.

REQUIREMENTS

Knitting Pattern BL Winter Wonderland Scarf/Shawl

After completing the projects for the Basic Lace Workshop, we will move on to making the Winter Wonderland Scarf/Shawl. This will give you an opportunity to use your new skills and have a beautiful accessory to wear afterword.

We will use these supplies:
To show off the patterning of the lace in this scarf, I would recommend a tonal yarn (subtle color changes) or a yarn with a solid color.
For the Scarf: 3 balls of sock yarn (fingering/2 or 3 ply) at 220 yds each would be 660 yards for the scarf. (That seems like it would be plenty. (I knit mine with sz 6 (4 mm).)

The shawl is 3x wider than the scarf. I am still working on the body of mine with size 5 and into the third ball of KnitPicks Glimmer lace weight yarn (440 yds/2 ounces each). [Ronie test knit this for me using lace weight (here in the US, most lace weights are 2 ply). She knit this off a spool, which she weighed and we figured it to be just under 4 ounces.] The larger the size needles you choose to use, the more yarn you will need.

3 balls of 440 yards lace weight for the shawl (6 oz. or 1,320 yds)
size 4, 5, or 6 circular needles (a minimum 24”) - You will need 2 sets.

This Winter themed scarf/shawl is constructed using four charts.

Each of the two ends of the project use three of the charts. After knitting the second end, you will continue to the fourth chart to make the body of your scarf 20" - 30" long, or longer if you wish or until you almost run out of yarn. (Save enough to Kitchner the two ends together!)

We will use a wonderful Youtube video to learn how to do the Kitchener Stitch. Here is the link to follow for these simple and effective instructions: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=nkW3kP7RZdk&app=desktop

As is posted in Designers announcement, there are four charts that we will be using for this Winter Wonderland scarf/shawl. I will post them one at a time. They each have their own written instructions accompanying them on the pdf. Read them very carefully. Please feel free to ask your questions and, very importantly, enjoy your new skills!!!

The first chart will keep you busy for quite awhile, but here is the Winter Wonderland Eyelet Border Chart #2 anyway. This chart will get used twice on each end of your scarf/shawl. The first time is after Snow on the Trees. The second time is after the Large Snowflake.

will you be posting a compilation of all the charts in one pattern, or is that up to us to do? It is so hard to go through the myriad of posts to find the charts when I am not on line every day. I have downloaded these first two but of course cannot start yet. Don't have the supplies and I have a shawl I have to finish first.

They are all going to be here shortly. We must have been posting at the same time. I am just about to post chart #4. :)

Here is the final chart, Winter Wonderland Snowfall. This is the body of the scarf. It continues right from the second end of the scarf/shawl. In other words, carefully follow the directions for the first end of your scarf. Set this end aside. Follow those very same directions all over again to knit your second end and continue on to this fourth chart for the body of your scarf.

Wonderful instructions here!!! This is the Youtube link to Kitchner Stitch: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=nkW3kP7RZdk&app=desktop

Toni--What a nice scarf. The details balance out so comfortably. Did I miss the anticipated length of the pattern?

Was just looking the online store Simply Sock Yarn which is located in Indiana. There is a KP thread on this store, too. They have some nice discounts of very good yarn for those interested.

Thank you, Tanya! I am glad you like it. The blue scarf that I did turned out to be 12" x 85". The body section is 30" long. The white shawl version is 24" x 70" with the body section being 20" long. I liked having the 30" body length for a looser wrap around my neck.

Thanks for the lead on the sock yarn. :thumbup:
