Light and Up

I've published a new and free pattern on Ravelry, Light and Up. I love simple designs and I love eyelets and my new shawl is a combination of both. It's very easy to knit and requires less than one skein of fingering weight yarn. The yellow shawl is knit in a linen yarn from Ullcentrum and is a perfect summer shawl. The blue shawl is knit in gorgeous Malabrigo Sock. The size is generous thanks to the bigger needles (5 mm) and the shawl is very light and airy. I love it and think it's very wearable. And I'm happy that many fellow knitters on Ravelry also like it! I'm also happy and proud that Malabrigo Yarn linked to my pattern on their website.

  1. Fantastisk fint og morsomt sjal. Dette vil jeg gjerne strikke og tror jeg kommer til å bruke Malabrigo sock. Men først er det en del prosjekter jeg må gjøre ferdig!

  2. Hej Carolin!
    Har blivit tipsad om din fina sjal på Ravelry och ska kanske försöka mig på den i Ullcentrums lingarn men då jag inte är så bra på att sticka efter engelska mönster undrar jag om du har det på svenska? Enligt medlemmarna på Online Stickcafé på FB ska det inte vara så svårt med engelskan men känner mig ändå lite osäker.

    Hälsning,
    Gia

    1. Hej!

      Förlåt sent svar, men jag har haft så mycket att göra i livet, så jag har inte hunnit med min blogg! :-)
      Nu finns det en svensk översättning, men det har du förhoppningsvis redan sett!

      Hälsningar

  3. I am about to start the last repeat of the eyelets. This is my first lace shawl, and I am so glad I picked your pattern. It has been a joy for me to knit. I haven't been able to do much else during my spare time. Thank you for offering such a beautiful yet simple design!!!

  9. I am finishing up on the "Light and Up" shaw. It is a lovely design. But......
    HELP, I'm having difficulty understanding the instructions for the bind off.

    How is this binding off, I see it is decreasing but how does it binding off?

  10. I just love the Light and Up shawl. I just finished my 2nd one and I'm sure I'll be making more. They make wonderful gifts. For those having difficulty with the bind off, I suggest watching a YouTube video on how to do it. I simplify it by using a crochet hook in place of the right hand needle. It makes it go much faster.

  11. Hi Caroline, I received the light it up shawl kit as a Christmas gift. It's beautiful and easy to knit thank you for the design. I've knitted up to 204 stitches on the needle in stockinette and it darned on me that I may have incorrectly knitted the increases on the purl side. The pattern just said continue 2 increases on the WS and 4 increase on the RS, are the WS (purl side) increases made purl wise? I did mine knit wise. Thank you, Della
