Railings is a striking and geometric shawl that takes its inspiration from 1930s Art Deco. The shawl has pivoting bands of eyelets that are intersected by mesh lace stripes at their turning points. Together they create a clean and airy look with a dynamic feel.
You begin the shawl at the neck and work your way down. Railings is a surprisingly simple, yet interesting knit. And as it uses just one skein of fingering weight yarn, it’s perfect for that treasured single skein in your stash.
One skein of Madelinetosh Tosh Sock (100% Merino; 361 m / 395 yds per 100 g). Shown in colourway Calligraphy.
Or approximately 314 m / 344 yds of similar fingering weight yarn.
Size 4 mm / US 6 circular needle. Or size that gives you pattern gauge.
Shawl is worked flat but I recommend using a 100 cm / 40 inch circular needle to accommodate the growing number of stitches.
20 sts and 40 rows = 10 cm / 4 inches in garter stitch, before blocking
175 cm / 69 in (width) x 51 cm / 20 in (depth)
kfb: knit to front and back loop of the same stitch
yo: yarn over
k2tog: knit 2 stitches together
