Maria's Favorite Shawl

This is Maria's Favorite Shawl for a reason. The chunky knit shawl pattern is as beautiful as it is cozy, but that's not it. The shawl is a simple, quick knitting project. The pattern is essentially a lacy repeat, and because it's knit with chunky yarn, you'll be finished in no time. The deep blues and grays of this pattern would look great with gold accessories. It may be called Maria's Favorite Shawl, but after you put it on, it'll be your favorite as well.

This is a pretty shawl pattern and not too hard to make. With the super bulky/super chunky yarn and big needles it should work up quickly. I love the colors in the photo but I'm sure it would look good in any self-patterning yarn, or even in a solid color yarn. I'm thinking a deep purple or dark brown would be great!

Instructions above is incomplete. Went to Red Heart to find the rest of instructions. After row 14 above, repeat rows 1-14 for pattern until Shawl measures 51 in. from cast on edge or to desired length, ending by working Row 14. Repeat rows 1-3 once more. Bind off all sts in knit. I get 12 stitches in 4 in. using US 13 needles. Guess I need to order bigger knitting needles or loosen up my stitches.

Hi Memphisjeepgirl, Thank you for notifying us of missing pattern information. Please see updated version above. -Editors of AllFreeKnitting

It does not say where to go from the last row. Do we repeat the 3 knit rows and start over or just start repeating the lacey parts?

It actually says to repeat rows 1-14 for 51".

Hi Ealizabethane Purl rows 5, 7, 9, 11, and 13 which are wrong side rows. mrsgthep :)

I agree with them. Purl wrong side rows 5 thru 13.

The way I see the pattern is row 5 and all wrong side rows thru 13: purl. or Purl wrong side rows 5 thru 13.

I've been knitting for almost 50 years and have never seen Row 5 written as it is-I even looked it up on the red heart website and it is exactly the same there-I can see it causing a lot of confusion. If anyone can translate this: Row 5 And all wrongside rows thru-thru what? If anyone can figure out the pattern row for the odd rows, this would be a wonderful project.

@Ealizabethane - All wrong side rows thru row 13 (continues on the next line)

It just means you Purl all the wrong side rows through out the pattern.
