This Shetland-style garter-stitch shawl explores a traditional lace pattern in a heavier, softer yarn than usual. The result is fun to knit, unfussy, and warm.

When Carolyn Wyborny saw “Knitted Lace, Fluted Design with Eyelets” from the September 1931 issue of Needlecraft Magazine, she knew it would be the perfect candidate for this venture into a DK-weight shawl. This edg­ing is particularly interesting because it incorporates short rows in addition to alternating stockinette and reverse-stockinette sections to produce a more ruf­fled appearance than the edgings she finds in her Weldon’s Practical Needlework wanderings.


  • Lisa Souza Dyeworks Polwarth Silk, 85% polwarth wool/15% tussah silk, DK weight, 400 yard (366 m)/4.8 oz (136 gram) skein, 2 skeins of Blue Steel
  • Needles, size 7 (4.5 mm) and 9 (5.5 mm) circ 32 inches (80 cm) or longer to accommodate the num­ber of sts
  • Spare circ 32 inches (80 cm) in same size or smaller than main needle (if not using interchangeable needles)
  • Stitch markers
  • Tapestry needle

 Finished size: 58 inches (147.3 cm) wide and 25 inches (63.5 cm) high in center, after blocking

Gauge: 18 sts and 38 rows = 4 inches (10.2 cm) in garter st using smaller needle, after blocking. Achieving the exact gauge is not critical for this project, but a differ­ent gauge will affect the drape and finished size.
