Spring 2012 Knit Along, Kate’s Shawl

We are now into Week 5 of the Knit Along for Kate’s Shawl and some of you may be finished by now.  I was planning on having mine completed for Stitches South last week, but I fell short only because I had other things to make.  Maybe if I had 2 sets of hands I could get more done.  No matter, I’m back working on this shawl and should have it finished by next week.  This will make a perfect wrap for the office.  Even though it’s getting warmer outside, the air conditioning in the office is a bit nippy at times and it blows right on my shoulders.

For those who recently started or need a refresher, we have posted 2 videos for this project.

Part 1 helps you with the stitch pattern.


Part 2

Part 2 will show you how to pick up stitches around the outer edges to create the ruffles.


Let us know how your project is coming along. Share pictures of your work in progress and the completed shawl.  This would make a great Mother’s Day gift — I know my Mom would love it!
