Ulyana Shawl Pattern
This design is a hybrid between a wide triangular shawl and a crescent shape, worked top down in two-colour stripes of varying depths, using a number of different lace patterns and areas of garter stitch and stocking stitch for added texture. Increases are worked at both side edges and either side of a central spine stitch.
Worked in either 4-ply or laceweight, 100g/450m of each colour is required for each version. Kits are available here.
The 4-ply measures 230cm (90 inches) across the wingspan of the upper edge, and 92cm (36 inches) deep at centre back, worked on 4mm needles. The laceweight measures 290cm (114 inches) across the wingspan and 107cm (42 inches) deep, worked on 3.25mm needles. A long circular needle is required to accommodate the number of stitches required for the last few rows.
The edging has optional beading - approximately 500 beads are required for the 4-ply version and 750 for the laceweight. My samples started and finished with the darker colour yarn but you can of course vary this as preferred.
The design is suitable for intermediate knitters with a reasonable level of experience. The lace pattern is not difficult but requires a little concentration, and I would not recommend it for beginners simply due to the large number of stitches on the needle at the end!
