Lace Sampler Shawl
Tricot / Knitting

This shawl is a great way to try out several lace patterns and colors of yarn to see if you like knitting them and to see how they look next to each other. By using a variety of patterns, the finished shawl is much more interesting than a lace shawl worked in a single repeat.

It is easy to make your own design of your favourite lace patterns by just lining up several repeats and working them into a large strip of knitting.

To make a gradual change from one skein to the next when using different colored skeins, as I did, when you have worked almost all the yarn of the first skein, you can gradually change to the color of the new skein by switching skeins of yarn every few rows, then every row, then every few rows again, then working only with the new color.

Finally, blocking is the key to making your lace look light and airy. The further you stretch your lace when blocking, the lacier effect you will achieve.

Blocking

Using warm water, dampen the knitting. Roll in a clean dry towel to remove excess moisture. Stretch the shawl across a large fl at surface, such as carpeting covered with a clean sheet, pinning the scarf at each point along the sides and shaping the ends. Continue stretching the knitting and straightening it so it is even and approximately the finished dimensions. Let dry, then remove pins.
