Lidia Tied Fringe Shawl

A winged shawl designed big enough to be folded in the shoulders and tied around the waist for extra warmth. The addition of a double knot fringe along the top edge brings additional originality to the piece. The combination of cotton and linen will provide texture, lightness, rusticity and a subtle shine. Mostly knitted in basic double seed/moss stitch, the shawl is reversible and ends with a simple eyelet pattern.

Pattern Notes

The shawl is knit flat from top to bottom.

On odd rows (RS), increases are made at the spine (2) and the edges (1 at the left and 1 at the right) [4 increases total].

On even rows (WS), increases are made only at the edges (1 at the left and 1 at the right) [2 increases total].

Being a reversible pattern, place a marker on the RS to remind you to work the 2 middle (spine) yarn over increases.

Start a new ball at the beginning of the row. Do not worry about the tails because they will be integrated into the fringe.

Finishing

Weave in ends. Wash and block to desired measurements

Double Knot Fringe

Prepare groups of 5 strands of 14” length that will be attached to every 4th yo hole along the long top edge of the shawl.

Fold a group of 5 strands in half, forming a loop. With RS of shawl facing, insert the crochet hook in the first yo of the top edge, place the loop on hook and pull up through the eyelet. Pull tail ends through the loop and tighten. Repeat in every 4th yo of the top edge.

With RS facing, take half the strands of one knot and half the strands of the knot next to it and knot them together, tighten, making sure edge stays flat and doesn’t buckle. Add any tails to a group of strands to integrated them into the fringe.

Lay shawl flat, “comb” the fringe straight with your fingers and cut evenly to desired length.

      Hi there! The timing is based on an estimation given from the designer. Everyone knits at a different speed and pace so I would just keep that in mind. Happy knitting! – Nicola, Editor
