When it comes to beginner knitting patterns, the adorable patterns at your disposal may seem virtually endless. How do you decide whether to knit a pair of socks, a hat, or a tote bag? How do you determine whether a shawl or a shawlette is the right choice for your particular skill level? Although you really can't go wrong no matter what type of free knitting pattern you decide to work up, there are some patterns better suited for certain skill levels. If you're interested in knitting a shawl or a shawlette, it is important to know the difference between the two in order to accurately gauge which choice is right for you.

Essentially, a shawlette is a smaller version of a shawl. Keep in mind a shawl can mean many thing to many people. Sometimes, wide scarves are even called shawls. However, a circular or triangular shawl that's smaller than the generous, cozy traditional shawl can be called a shawlette. At the end of the day, what you call these knit pieces is not particularly important. Rather, you must ask yourself whether knitting a large, lace shawl seems like an overwhelming task. If the answer is "yes," then knitting a shawlette is probably more your speed. A full-scale shawl can likely take more than a month to knit, whereas a shawlette might take a couple of dedicated weeks.

In addition, shawlettes are often one skein projects, so they're perfect for using up that special yarn you've been hoarding for months. Whether you call this pattern a triangle scarf, kerchief, wrap, or shawlette, one thing is clear - you can't deny the beauty of this beginner knitting pattern.

A real pretty shawlette, it has a very nice lacy pattern. I would love to knit this but in a different colour, may be white or black. I would like to add some shiny yarn with white to make it a nice evening wear, if anyone could help me regarding this.

Lovely pattern, easy to follow instructions, and it turned out like the picture. The drape is nice--easy to wear unlike some shawl designs. Love it! -)

Why does it say "Easy" and when you get to the pattern it says "Experienced"(difficult!) Uuuggghh!!!

Don't be so hard on yourself please Just wanted to share my experience I was a very new knitter saw a lace pattern I liked I didn't even know it was lace I'm serious I looked at all the stitches the pattern called for and realized I could do them we only have knit purl the rest was explained So I bought the book with the pattern in it and started by myself It wasn't until I got to my knitting guild that I was told I was doing 'lace' knitting I still didn't realize what I was doing I was just happy they told me I was doing it correctly LOL I really love lace I think it is the variety for me I immediately wanted to knit this Shawlette when I saw it I will have to look at the pattern and add it to my stack Oh IRead More always keep track of my rows on a tablet and I never put down my knitting until I have finished the row And I never wear anything I have knitted around my dogs one mishap was enough

it says easy....go to the pattern and experienced....get it right....ty for the free patterns though as I do like them...this is too hard....

I think it is beautiful and hopefully one day I will have the skill to do it. right now I consider myself to be below that skill level.

I'm confused. The pattern shows as rated "Easy". However on the site where the pattern actually is, it shows as "Experienced". Looks to be the latter - I'm saving the pattern anyway because I really like it. It is above my experience level for now though! LOL!

did that also....easy? did not think so :)

I downloaded the pattern and started it Unfortunately I read the yarn name wrong and ordered Elann Bamboo Cotton blend which is a beautiful yarn but not the right yarn to get the stitch definition that the real yarn did I also recommend using markers quite frequently when you get to the leaf rows I did not and relied on counting stitches in each repeat and kept messing my count up I would be okay on one row and then managed to add or lose stitches in the next row somewhere I finally gave up and ripped out the inches or more that I had already done Some day I will get the right yarn and make it again It does knit up fast and even with the mistakes it looked okay and you could not really see the mistakes but if anyone saw the picture after looking at my versionRead More they would see that it was nothing like the original due to all of my mistakes Putting it mildly I did not do justice to this pattern at all Next time though it will look like hers

Had the same problem with a different lace shawl. Used markers and checked every pattern repeat and row count on the right side but then it was wrong going back on the wrong side. Gave up and ripped it out. Can't get this pattern comes back with the message that site cannot be found. Reconnected to WiFi several times and still could not get it. Any suggestions of another place to download it from would be appreciated.
