Overview:
This lacy shawl is bordered by garter stitches to prevent curled edges. It can be made
dressy or everyday by the yarn that you use. Use a thin stranded bulky yarn for a lacy
fashion shawl, or use two strands together or a thicker yarn for a warmer shawl. It’s the
perfect wrap for a prom or wedding, or when the air conditioning at the office is turned
up too high.
The sample shawl was knit on the round yellow Knifty Knitter loom using 3 skeins (1.76
oz., 83 yd) of Moda Dea Eden yarn in color #5341 Serpent.
Skill Level: Easy

• Large gauge round knitting loom with 41 pegs, such as the round yellow KK
loom

• Crochet cast on (see notes below)

Notes:
• All knit stitches are twisted stockinette, made with the e-wrap stitch.
• New yarn skeins should be added at the beginning of a row so the woven in tails are
less conspicuous.
• Cable Cast On. This cast on is like crocheting a single chain, but catching each peg
with the underside bump. The two strands of the chain will be on the inner side of
the peg, and one strand of yarn will be on the outer notched side of the peg.
1. Make a slip knot 6” from the end of the yarn, and place it between pegs 1 and
41 (above the anchor peg).
2. Put the crochet hook through the loop in the slip knot.
3. Let the working yarn wrap around peg 1, and catch the yarn with the crochet
hook.
4. Pull the working yarn through the loop on the crochet hook.
5. Let the working yarn wrap around the next peg, and catch the yarn with the
crochet hook.
6. Repeat step 5 until there is a loop on every peg, including peg 40.
7. Put the loop remaining on the crochet hook onto peg 41.
• Flat Removal Method:
1. The working yarn should be at peg 41.
2. Put the loop on peg 2 onto peg 1.
3. Knit off peg 1.
4. Put the loop from peg 1 onto empty peg 2.
5. Repeat steps 1 – 3 until there is one loop left on the loom.
6. Wrap the peg and knit off. Cut the yarn, leaving a 6” tail.
7. Wrap the peg and knit off again. Pull on the remaining loop until the cut end
of the yarn comes through. Pull snug against the knit fabric.
