Little Frills Shawlette
"The Little Frills Shawlette is a quick, fun and easy make that begins with casting on 81 stitches. Then, on each right side row for the first panel, you’ll work gradual increases. Then, as you progress, you’ll begin doing large increases that nearly double your stitch count. The rows work quickly, as they are only using knits, purls and yarn overs. The yarn over rows are also accented with a garter stitch border; so that’s 2 rows with each yarn over where you won’t be purling! The bind off used is the “Picot” bind off and it requires casting on 2 stitches and then binding off 4. It takes some time, but is so worth it in the end. The Little Frills Shawlette uses size US 9 / 5.5 mm knitting needles and King Cole's "Finesse" Cotton Silk DK weight yarn. It uses just under 3 skeins of the main color (Blush) and 2 skeins of the contrast color (Ice). This pattern is the second one in the Summer Extravaganza -Finesse Cotton Silk DK Mini Make Along With King Cole Yarns. It measures: 60” / 152.4 cm long at widest point x 10” / 25.4 cm deep This pattern is available for free on my website. There is also a video tutorial with time stamps to help you along the way, as well as a link to a video for doing the Russian Join (for when you need to add another skein). This pattern has been tested."
