About this Pattern
Make some trails with your stitches and watch the colours of your yarn blaze brightly with this one-skein shawl.
Trail and Blaze is designed to make the most of your colourful yarn with stretches of smooth stockinette and paths of simple lace yarnovers.
As you work your shawl, parallel tracks of lace emerge and border a path that zig-zags its way to the edge. Once you near the end of your shawl, the lace and stockinette become straight paths to decorate the edges of your shawl. A reminder that, even though a journey might take you in different directions, ultimately, you’ll always find a path to your home straight!
So trailblaze a path with your knitting and make your own tracks with this fun project!
If you are new to knitting lace, this shawl would be the perfect opportunity to give it a try. Using just yarnover and k2tog stitches to create the lace, each section is worked between markers so you can easily keep count of your stitches. A video tutorial on how to work the [yo, k2tog] stitch combination can be found here https://www.undertheolivetreeknits.com/lace-stitches.html
