A delicate but quick to work shawl that’s perfect for layering as the days are getting cooler. Starting at the centre top, using a double sided cast on for a seamless beginning, yarn overs emerge from the reverse stocking stitch background trailing knit columns. The scattered pattern grows denser at the lower edge transitioning into a simple but effective mesh pattern.
Cariño’s edges have the appearance of neat i-cord but are worked as rolled stockinette to give the shawl more give for blocking. Increases are worked on every other row at the centre spine and on every row at the edges to create a wide shallow triangle that’s rounded off with the curved mesh border and completed with a crochet chain bind off.
The pattern is both fully charted and written out, to suit every knitters preference.
Cariño is worked in SweetGeorge Yarns Silk Crush, a gorgeous fingering weight superwash merino and silk blend, in the colourway Blood Orange. Perfect for brightening up any dreary mornings!
Cariño is the fourth pattern in the Knitworthy 2 collection and is currently only available to subscribers. You can find out more about it and purchase a subscription here.
