Intro to Lace - Age of Brass and Steam
A unisex triangular scarf/kerchief knitted in DK weight yarn that is a great beginner shawl pattern. You'll learn all about increasing and decreasing as well as how to "make one".
The shawl is approx. 53 inches in width and 15 inches from center back to center point, when blocked aggressively. A single skein of DK weight yarn will yield a kerchief size.
This pattern could easily be made with fingering to worsted weight yarn. By simply adding more repeats of the stockinette and garter ribbed eyelet sections, you can make a kerchief or shawl as large as you wish. Note that yardage requirements will vary with different yarn weights.
