About this Pattern
New to knitting from charts? This one is for you! Knit this shawl using the 'Charts Explained' version of the pattern with lots of hints and tips on how to read and use charts to read your knitting.
Take a walk through morning streets of dappled sunlight wrapped in the hug of a big, cosy shawl. Dappled Days was inspired by the start of a new day and the promises it can bring. As the sunlight filters through the leaves, paths become illuminated with a million patches of light, each one lighting the way to something new. These tiny pools of light are reflected in the simple lace stitches of the Dappled Days shawl, and the straight and bold garter stitch stripes are horizons expanding before you.
Dappled Days is a top-down triangular shawl designed with the new lace knitter in mind. Two colours of DK yarn alternate in bands of garter stitch and lace. When selecting yarn colours, solid colourways will work best; choose a light-coloured yarn for the lace so the stitches can shine.
If you are new to knitting lace or working from charted instructions before then this project would be the perfect opportunity to give it a try. Why not start the instructions from page 6 and see how the charts all piece together? There are lots of helpful hints and tips to help you along the way.
Dappled Days is an adventure to be had, just like the future that awaits you. Expand your horizons and never stop dreaming!*
