Evelyn's Elegant Mohair Lace Shawl Knit Pattern
Pattern to knit a mohair lace shawl from 3 weights of mohair yarn.
Full color pattern to knit an 18" wide x 48" long shawl with a simple 2-row lace pattern in 3 different weights of yarn.
Super Bulky Weight
Worsted Weight (shown bottom left; Idιna Mohair Lux from Swedish Yarn Imports, 2 100g/176yd balls )
Lace Weight (shown top and middle left; Karabella Lace Mohair, 1 50g/500m ball, color 1412 Blueberry)
Pattern is written for Super Bulky Weight with variations for Worsted Weight and Lace Weight in parentheses:
Needles: 24" long (or longer) circular size US 15(11,9) [10(8,5.5)mm], or size to obtain gauge.
Gauge: 11(15,18) sts = 3 and 20 rows = 4 in pattern stitch.
Skill Building: This lace looks complex but is very easy to knit, so it is a great first lace stitch to try. The RS row is the lace row; the WS row is just purl. The challenge comes in working with the mohair yarn, which is very hard to rip. If this is your first experience with mohair, choose the Super Bulky Weight. Stitches used are k, p, k2tog, SSK, and yo.
