Lion Brand® Homespun®

GAUGE:

8 sts = 4" [10 cm]. 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

STITCH EXPLANATION:

Sl 2 kwise-k1-p2sso Slip 2 stitches together knitwise (as though to knit), knit 1, pass 2 slipped stitches over the knit stitch = centered double decrease.

Diamond Knit Shawl Reviewed by Marjorie on 2015-01-07 *****
This (in 2010 at age 18)was my first experience with knitting a lace pattern and I found it easier than most of my other projects! It was fun and turns out beautifully. I even made up a useful chart to help myself if I got lost sequence-wise. This is what I term the cheat sheet for this pattern!
Beside each row number I give the number of stitches you should END UP with! Have fun.

1=7
2=9
3=9
4=11
