Shape of a Heart - Shawl - English version - PDF
Shape of a Heart is a symmetrical triangle shawl that is worked from the top down beginning with a garter tab cast-on. It is covered by a lace pattern running on both sides of a central spine. As it goes, the lace grows faster until it turns into a diamond shape. The lace pattern is easy to memorize and is knit on the right side of the shawl only. All wrong side rows are purled.
Yarn: Approximately 700m of Fingering yarn. Sample was knit with 2 skeins of By Night Sirius (75%Bluefaced Leicester • 25%Gotland - 100g = 350m) dyed with cochenille.
Needles: 3,5mm (US#4) (using circular needles will make it more comfortable to knit - Adapt needle size to obtain gauge)
Gauge (after blocking: 18m x 30 rangs = 10cm in the chart 2 pattern (Gauge is not necessary but a different one will affect the size of the finished shawl or the amount of yarn used)
