346 to 348.--Knitted Shawl.
Materials Shetland wool, white and scarlet; steel needles.
This shawl is knitted in the patterns given on Nos. 346 and 347.
Both illustrations show the patterns worked in coarse wool, so as
to be clearer. Begin the shawl, which is square, on one side, cast
on a sufficient number of stitches (on our pattern 290); the
needles must not be too fine, as the work should be loose and
Knit first 2 rows plain, then 3 of the open-work row of pattern
No. 346, which is worked in the following manner:--
1st row: Slip the first stitch, * knit 2 together, inserting the
needle into the back part of the stitch, slip 1, knit 2 together,
throw the wool twice forward; repeat from *.
2nd row: Knit 1 and purl 1 in the stitch formed by throwing the
wool forward in the preceding row; the other stitches are purled.
In the next row the holes are alternated--that is, after the 1st
slipped stitch knit 1, throw the wool forward, and then knit twice
When 3 such open-work rows are completed, knit 1 row plain, and
then work the pattern seen on No. 347, which
forms the ground, and is worked in the following way:--1st row:
Slip the 1st stitch, alternately throw the wool forward, and
decrease by slipping 1 stitch, knitting the next, and drawing the
slip stitch over the knitted one.
2nd row, entirely purled.
When 6 such rows have been worked in this pattern, work again 9
rows of the open-work pattern, but work on each side of the 2
stripes, each 6 stitches wide, in the pattern of the ground (No.
347); each first stripe is at a distance of 4 stitches from the
edge, and each second stripe at a distance of 20 stitches. After
the 9th open-work row, work again 6 rows in the pattern of the
ground, then again 8 open-work rows, and then begin the ground,
only continue to work on both sides of the shawl the narrow stripes
of the ground pattern, the narrow outer and the two wide inner
stripes of the border in the open-work pattern. When the ground
(pattern No. 347) is square, finish the shawl at the top with two
wide and one narrow open-work row, as at the
bottom, divided by stripes in the ground pattern. Knot in, all
round the shawl, a fringe of scarlet wool; the fringe must be 3-1/2
