Ley Lines PDF


Part of the SongLines Collection

Ley Lines is a bottom up shawl with patterning on both sides. The first half is knit in a wave lace interspersed with slipped stitch lines worked in a coordinating color. Decreases occur at the begin and end of each row resulting in two stitches decreased per row. Section two of the shawl is knit in stockinette using a single color.

In order to create the 1-row lines of coordinating color you’ll be working consecutive right side and wrong side rows. (A circular needle is essential in being able to do this!) Each row of the pattern indicates whether it is a RS or WS row. When you work a RS (or WS) row and see another RS (or WS) row immediately after you’ll simply slide your stitches back to the left needle and work another row without turning your piece.

Sections one and two of the shawl are charted and written. The final section (stockinette) is written only. The yarn used in this design blocks out quite nicely.

If you’re using a yarn with less stretch consider a slightly looser gauge/larger needle.
