Whakahoahoa Shawl, Aroha Knits. Print Knitting Pattern
This is a beautifully printed knitting pattern which also includes a Ravelry download code.
This shawl is knit side-to-side, from tip to tip, in four main sections: the set-up, the increase, the decrease and then the finishing. The design features a simple diamond motif that is easy to memorise and even easier to knit. You can adjust the size of the shawl for the amount of yarn you have in your stash or to the length you wish (as the increase and decrease sections are just halves of each other). Due to the simplicity of the stitch pattern, you can use that beautiful skein of variegated yarn that’s been hiding in your stash for so long but haven’t had an opportunity to use (until now!).
Knit this shawl for a knit worthy friend that you wish to celebrate, or knit one for yourself (you’re deserving of love and appreciation too!).
Yarn: Fingering yarn
Meterage: The sample used 640 m, but yardage is easily adjustable for 1 skein (approx 400m).
Size: Sample measures 203 cm by 63.5 cm
Needles: US 5/3.75 mm size or size needed to obtain gauge.
A long circular needle is recommended in order to accommodate the large number of stitches as the shawl grows.
Gauge: 24 sts x 32 rows per 4 in./10 cm in lace stitch pattern with suggested needle size and after blocking.
Gauge is not crucial to this project, but varying gauges will affect yardage and final measurements.
This is a printed knitting pattern.
