big and beautiful shawl with a lovely lace and nupp border
This large shawl has a main body pattern of simple stockinette with garter stitch ridges.
The bottom lace border is worked side to side to bind of the body of the shawl, thus leaving very few stitches to actually bind off when finished.

There are 2 versions of this shawl offered with the pattern : fingering and worsted. They both create a large and beautiful shawl to cuddle up in.

The lace portion is written out (not charted).

fingering version : 69in x 28.5in

worsted version : 850 yds to 900yds : 87in x 42in

  • How to make a shawl. Sgiach Shawl - Step 6
    Step 6

    Repeat these 24 rows to first m.
    Remove m .
    Follow pattern (right and wrong side rows) with center st. Remove m.
    Continue in pattern repeating rows 1 – 24 til 3 sts remain on
    left needle. Do one more RS row. On WS : sl 1, k all sts, turn.
    (RS) : k to last 3 sts, k2tog, turn. (WS) : sl 1, k all sts, turn.
    (RS) : k to last 2sts, k2tog, turn.
    BO loosely all remaining sts.
    Weave in ends and block to
    measurements.
    For a smaller shawl: use you gauge swatch to decide how many re- peats of the main body you wish to make (the border is about 4in wide). Take the number of stitches you have after the main body and divide it by 24. You now know how many repeats of lace you will have. Take the number of repeats x 24. Subtract that number from the main body stitches, then divide that number by 2. This is the number of garter stitch rows you will need at the begin- ning and end for everything to work out evenly.
