Stella Luna Lace Shawl

By:

9 Comments

Make a beautiful Stella Luna lace shawl to wear over a fancy dress. These knit shawl patterns from Natalia Blank are beautiful and stylish.

Stella Luna

Materials:

  • Lace weight yarn (880 yards/805 m in 100 g) – about 75 g
  • Needles – size 6 US (4 mm), 8 US (5 mm)
  • Patterns

Instructions:
The shawl is knitted in tiers: Scheme 1 (bottom tier) is knitted once, Scheme 2 (middle tiers) is knitted 3
times, Scheme 3 (top of the shawl) is knitted once.


Start: cast on 249 stitches on bigger needles. I really recommend using a short-tail method, or simple
e-wrap. If you are using a long-tail method you might consider to cast on onto two needles and pull
one out after you are done. The goal is to make the bottom row very loose for good stretching during
the blocking. Knit the next row.


Bottom tier: continue with smaller needles. Knit the right side of the shawl according to Scheme 1.
After you reach the middle stitch, follow the same scheme FROM LEFT TO RIGHT to knit the left side of
the shawl. Middle stitch is knitted once.


Middle tier 1: knit according to Scheme 2. The fragment of scheme in gray (repeat) will be knitted 7
times. As before: once you have reached the middle stitch do the trick of following the scheme from
left to right.


Middle tier 2: knit according to Scheme 2. The fragment of scheme in gray (repeat) will be knitted 5
times. As before: once you have reached the middle stitch do the trick of following the scheme from
left to right.


Middle tier 3: knit according to Scheme 2. The fragment of scheme in gray (repeat) will be knitted 3
times. As before: once you have reached the middle stitch do the trick of following the scheme from
left to right.


Top: knit according to Scheme 3. As before: once you have reached the middle stitch do the trick of
following the scheme from left to right.


Finish: you will have 9 stitches on your needle at this point. RS: Knit 3 together, 3 times. WS: Purl 3
together. Pull the yarn through the last stitch. DONE!


Notes: the shawl on the picture was knitted with nupps (Estonian lace knitting term – GOOGLE it);
however, if you don’t want to bother – they can be omitted and a designated stitch is knitted on a RS
and purled on a WS. Or, if you want to make the shawl very fancy, you can add beads in place of nupps.

Look just below the picture where it says materials. The third item show in red Patterns. Click that on and your pattern should be in a PDF format

Interesting... you give the amounts to put on the needled... and then no pattern to knit. There is no Scheme 1, 2 or 3... therefore no lace.

Ok, so now I have found it in my inbox, but I am still going round in circles and not finding the actual lace patterns!

The hyperlink to the Patterns will not work, so can only print out the construction guide. I signed up to save the project but cannot now find it anywhere?

For those of you who may not know Stellaluna is a wonderful story about a young fruit bat who got separated from her mom, after reading this story you will never feel the same about bats ever again. It was written by a local author here in So. California. She has written other stories which I am sure are equally amazing but I haven't had kids with me and hunting for a specific book in the kids section is not always the easiest thing to do.

although I am still new to the knitting world, I just love this and can't wait to try it...but lace scares me. So so easy to tangle!
