Spring 2012 Knit Along, Kate’s Shawl-Week3

We are into week 3 of the Knit Along for Kate’s Shawl and you should be well on your way to completion.  I just love the textured design it creates. It’s a simple pattern repeat to follow; you just need to pay attention because 1 or 2 stitches missed can throw off the entire look. Last week I ended up having to rip out several inches of my work, and that was not pleasant.  It’s not the first time nor will it be the last. That’s what happens when you rush and don’t pay attention. I’m back on track and almost finished. I’m hoping to wear it next week while attending Stitches South.

We have posted 2 videos for this project.

Part 1


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. I’m thinking about making another for my Mom as a Mother’s Day gift. She will love it!
