Painted Wings Shawlette

Completely beautiful and charmingly rustic, the Painted Wings Shawlette is a knit shawl pattern you'll love draping over your shoulders whenever the mood strikes. This lacy pattern looks amazing in a pretty multi-colored variegated yarn, but the design is strong enough to hold up to a solid color fiber, as well. The diamond lace edging looks lovely when styled like a scarf or covering your shoulders as a traditional knit shawl pattern.

Thanks for your comment. Don't forget to share!

could you please help me with the 1 and 3 row of this pattern ie m1L knit to m etc i am unfamiliar with these terms thank you for such lovely patterns

Thank you, never having done this type of starting tab can you tell me where can I learn about it. Would so like to get started on painted wings shawlette.

plaese tell me what does Tab mean, not wishiung to be dense but pick up stitches along edge of Tab? do not understand.

"Tab" refers to a particular type of shawl cast on, where you create a small knitted triangle that the shawl is then knit from. When the pattern says to pick up stitches along the tab, you just pick up stitches along the row of stitches you just created. Editors of AllFreeknitting

Can anyone explain this tab starting to me, I would be most gratefull.

I really wish you would put photos beside each of the patterns so that you don't have to click on each one individually to see what it looks like. This would apply to all the pattern lists you send.

What does "pm" mean? I've heard a lot of abbreviations but that's not one.

my guess is PLACE MARKER... but I also wondered about the .... m1L & m1R.... something to do with Left and Right.. MAKE 1?

PM-place marker, M1L-make one left M1R-make one right Hope this helps.
