Asymmetrical triangleFingering weight yarn
Inspired by the annual meteor showers, this shawl uses an easy-to-knit lace that just flies off the needles. The lace has a lot of directional movement and optional sparkly beads. The shawl is worked in fairly basic lace stitches from end-to-end.
RectangularFingering weight yarn
Marigold is worked seamlessly from a center temporary cast on down to both ends. The main body is a simple and quick-to-knit leaf lace, which contrasts nicely with the more elaborate border stitches. Optional beading along the edges makes a pretty addition to the knit and adds extra weight and interest to the finished shawl.
TriangleWorsted weight yarn
This shawl combines modern lines with simple textures and yarn overs, creating unique surface interest on both sides of the shawl. Iolite is knitted simply in one piece, starting at the center of the top edge without the need for a garter tab, and it is shaped into a practical elongated triangle using double increases at the center and along both edges.Lace weight yarn
First, the deep border is knitted in one piece, side-to-side. The border combines cables with lace. After the border is complete, stitches are picked up along the top edge (through slipped stitches) and the shawl is shaped into a crescent with a set of simple stockinette short rows (no wraps).

How does a KAL work?
A knit along (KAL) is a little different than a conventional class. We’re all working toward the same goal: crossing the finish line with a beautiful lace shawl by May 16.
Your moderators will explain, demonstrate, and teach pattern features, such as special cast ons and bind offs, lace stitches, how to add beads (optional), and more. We’ll be available to help and answer your questions during multiple help sessions.
Can I sign up after April 29?
The KAL runs from April 29 through May 16. You can sign up to participate any time before the end of the KAL, and you will receive a project bag and all paper, online, and video help resources. In-person assistance is available during the KAL.
What tools and supplies will I need?
Please purchase the pattern you want to make and provide all other tools you will need, including yarn and needles.
