THE “LADY EDITH’S LONDON NIGHTS SHAWL” PATTERN IS NOW AVAILABLE AS A PDF PATTERN TO PURCHASE HERE OR ON RAVELRY. TO PURCHASE NOW, FOR $5.00, CLICK ON THE FIRST PHOTO. PLEASE CONTACT ME IF YOU NEED ANY HELP, FIND ERRORS, OR WISH TO COMMENT.
Downton Abbey’s Season 4 Episode 2 aired last Sunday, and those who are following along with my shawl will know that I am making 2 different shawls to celebrate this season’s episodes. I am trying to make a shawl that uses both textured and lacier stitch-work that is similar in shape and size to the Downton Abbey knitted mystery shawl hosted by Jimmy Beans Wool.
PLEASE do NOT make this shawl yet if you want to be guaranteed a certain shape, size, yarn yardage, etc. This design is definitely going to be available as a finished pattern in about 6 more weeks (after the current Downton Abbey season is finished).
For yarns, hooks, previous tips and suggestions, etc SEE PREVIOUS POSTS! I can not repeat everything as I hope to keep the posts shorter. After the shawl is finished all the information will be gathered into a single pdf file. Meanwhile, as this is a work-in-progress, please refer back for some information–thanks! And, as always, write to me (from the blog contact form, on Facebook, or on Ravelry) if you need help, have suggestions, or just want to comment! Please link to my pattern on Ravelry–I would really appreciate it!
