The Chelsea Girl Shawl pattern has texture, stripes of 3 colors, and a picot edging for an overall edgy but feminine look. Knit in light-worsted-weight yarn, this is a fairly quick knit (except for the picot edging, of course, which takes as long as any picot edging will), and is a great layering piece to ward off a bit of chill on the shoulders or to wear draped around your neck as a neck wrap.

Named after my old neighborhood in Manhattan, Chelsea, where you can find the High Line park, Chelsea Market shops, and a bunch of art galleries, the eyelet and stripes details would be equally at home on a country mouse or a city mouse.

CONSTRUCTION: This shawl uses a garter tab cast-on and then is worked down and out from the top center, with a spine of stitches. The main eyelet stitches are created with yarn overs, and the eyelet sections alternate with stockinette sections. A special eyelet section and picot edging finish off the bottom edge.

FINISHED SIZE: one size of 56-inch (142 cm) wingspan / 27 inches (68 cm) spine length, but depending on the yarn used and its stretchiness, the wingspan may vary slightly.

GAUGE: Gauge is not crucial to this pattern, but it will affect the yarn usage and how aggressively you may want to block your shawl, so I recommend knitting a gauge swatch: 16 sts / 20 rows = 4" (10 cm) square in stockinette.

DIFFICULTY: Intermediate or adventurous beginner (use of yarn overs, increases, decreases, tab cast-on, picot bind-off).

YARN: 1 skein each of 3 colors (approx. 555 yds / 507 m total) of DK or light-worsted-weight wool yarn.

***I love to see your knitted versions of my patterns, so it would be great if you would tag the pattern #chelseagirlshawl in any WIP or finished shawl photos on social media! :-)
