Princess Shawl

By:

5 Comments

This beautiful Princess Shawl from Red Heart Yarn was inspired by Princess Kate, who was seen wearing one very similar.  A knitted shawl is a great fashion staple, as it's great to wear year round and can easily be dressed up or dressed down.

Princess Shawl

Materials:

  • RED HEART® “Soft Yarn®”: 4 balls 9523 Dark Leaf
  • Knitting Needles: 5mm [US 8] circular needle, 32” long
  • Stitch markers
  • Removable split ring stitch markers (optional)
  • Yarn needle

GAUGE: 19 sts = 4”; 19 rows = 4”. CHECK YOUR GAUGE. Use any size needle to obtain the gauge.
NOTE: Ruffle is worked in two pieces to keep the number of stitches on needle from becoming difficult to manage.

 

Instructions:
Shawl measures 62” wide (measured across top edge) and 31” long (measured from center back neck to point). Ruffle adds 5” to length and width.

PATTERN STITCH (multiple of 4 sts):

Oops faux pas. It's Catherine Duchess of Cambridge or Princess William of Wales. Never Princess Kate or Catherine as she is a commoner and not of royal blood. On her marriage she became a princess of the United Kingdom but can only use it in conjunction with her husband's name not hers. Complicated I know but we British have standards to adhere to!!! xxx

figured out the pattern, however the right hand side of center is defined but the left hand side is not so will not be continuing with it.

love this shawl but loose the pattern after row 10. I repeat row 7 an 8 but when repeating row 9 I have 3 stitches before the first marker what am I doing wrong.

Looks absolutely WONDERFUL! Thank-you very much indeed.

This is very nice. I would be much better if it was done in crochet. But wanted to say I liked it.
