Indian Summer Shawl

Lion Brand® Recycled Cotton


18 sts = 4 in. (10 cm) in Stockinette st (knit on right side, purl on wrong side).

When you match the gauge in a pattern, your project will be the size specified in the pattern and the materials specified in the pattern will be sufficient. The needle or hook size called for in the pattern is based on what the designer used, but it is not unusual for gauge to vary from person to person. If it takes you fewer stitches and rows to make your swatch, try using a smaller size hook or needles; if more stitches and rows, try a larger size hook or needles.

Making a Gauge Swatch

Cast on 2 sts.
Row 1: (K into front and then back of next st) twice.
Row 2: K2tog, yo, k1, yo, k1.

Rep Rows 3 and 4 until there are a total of 134 sts, end with a WS row.

Next Row: Purl.
Rep last 2 rows until 5 sts rem, end with a WS row

Still working on the decrease edge and found a way to get a similar look to the lacy increase edge. Here's how: on the dec row, 5 stitches from end; SSK, SSK, YO, K1. Here's how it looks.
