IMG_0021The Cherty Shawlette is a one-skein project in my good friend Jeane de Coster’s newest yarn, Civility.

It knits up quickly on US7 needles — so if you’re still looking for a gift to knit, here you go!

Little back story on the photoshoots:  We originally did a photoshoot in September, and got some gorgeous pics.  Unfortunately, though I thought I was being very very careful in draping it across my shoulders with the right side out…I obviously wasn’t careful enough. Sigh.  I couldn’t expect Dave to know the difference (though now at photoshoots, I’m careful to point out which is the right side so he does know).


The Details

This simple but elegant lace pattern blends the edging with the main lace repeat, which in turn is blended with the garter stitch short row section.

Lace repeat is both charted and written.

The pattern is designed to use one skein of sport weight yarn.
