Enlighten Me !

Enlighten Me! shawl

A glowing and fiery shawl with flames to enlighten you or perhaps your friend. The crescent shaped shawl drapes nicely over your shoulders or under your chin without extra bulk.

Knit the shawl in fingering / 4ply or lace weight yarn, and add sparkle if you wish. I let the burnt orange silk lace shine on its own, whereas the red shawl in fingering / 4ply yarn includes glowing beads. Beads add not only sparkle, but also weight and drape.

The design is suitable for all knitters with a little experience. It is knitted in one piece from the outer lace edge. The shawl gets its crescent shape by short rows with decreases in stocking stitch. The lace instructions are given both in writing and in chart.

Techniques used

  • Decreases: k2tog, ssk, p2tog, centered double decrease, knit 2 stitches together through back loops
  • Increase: yarn over
  • Placing beads (optional)
  • Short rows
  • I-cord bind off

The double decrease, placing beads, short rows, and I-cord bind off are explained in the pattern.
