Free Knitting Pattern: the Jubilee Year Shawl

with 2 comments

Ahh … a fresh pattern. Smells like springtime, doesn’t it?

For my fellow Ravelers, the PDF is now featured here. 
(I am alternately proud and nervous.)

For those who are not on Ravelry, the stripped-down pattern is still available below.

Materials:
US size 3 needles (or size needed to obtain gauge)
2 skeins fingering-weight yarn, approximately 50g/220 yards each, 440 yards total.
3 stitch markers.

Yarn used in sample is Knit Picks “Bare” & “Imagination”.
I used about 200 yards of each, but each knitter is individual; your mileage may vary.
Gauge is not crucial.

16 st x 32 rows = 4” x 4” st st

Finished size:
about 2 feet by 4 feet.

Abbreviations:

mc = main color (comprises garter stitch ridges. In sample, the MC is white.)
mc = contrasting color (comprises stockinette stripes. In sample, CC is multi-colored.)
sl1 = slip one stitch
pm = place marker
slm = slip marker

Note: The right side rows are odd numbers; the wrong-side rows are even-numbered.

Cast on 3 stitches with main color.

Row 1-6: knit all.
Turn work 90 degrees counter-clockwise, then pick up and knit three stitches along top of work. (6 stitches total.)
Turn work 90 degrees counter-clockwise, then pick up and knit three stitches along top of work (9 stitches).

Change to contrasting color.

row 7 (cc) – k3, pm, yo, k1, yo, pm, k1, yo, k1, yo, pm, k3.
row 8 (cc) – k3, p to last marker (slipping markers as you come to them), k 3.
row 9 (mc) – k3, slm, yo, k3, slm, yo, k1, yo, k3, yo, slm, k3.
row 10 (mc) – k all (slipping markers as you come to them),

row 11 (cc) – k3, slm, yo, k to m, yo, slm, k1, yo, k to m, yo, slm, k3.
row 12 (cc) – k3, p to last marker (slipping markers as you come to them), k 3.
row 13 (mc) – k3, slm, yo, k to m, yo, slm, k1, yo, k to m, yo, slm, k3.
row 14 (mc) – k all (slipping markers as you come to them).

Continue to repeat rows 11-14 until piece measures 2 feet from bottom tip of triangle to top, or until desired length.

Bind off loosely on a right side row.

Weave in ends.

Block gently. Severe blocking will stretch the garter ridges and will make a larger shawl.
Wear with pride!
