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 (Canadian) PLEASE CLICK ON THE FIRST PHOTO. PLEASE CONTACT ME IF YOU NEED ANY HELP, FIND ERRORS, OR WISH TO COMMENT.
There are only 2 rows left now to finish the Lady Edith’s London Nights Shawl. I will add more photos after I have washed and blocked it, but here is one photo to show you the edging. I worked crab stitch up the short edge of the shawl.
Please remember that this shawl will be available to purchase as a paid instant pdf download in a few days, at which time all the Rows now posted online will be removed. I have had no indication that anyone is actually making this shawl as not one viewer has commented, contacted me, etc., but if you are making the shawl please make sure you write out the rows soon, if you do not care to purchase the pattern compiled into a short document instead of spread out over several posts! Please remember that this pattern is COPYRIGHT and sharing it in any format is not allowed. Please link to my website if you want to share my patterns or information.
And, as always, please write to me here, using the contact form at the bottom of the post, or on Facebook or Ravelry, if you need any help or find any errors–or have any comments. If you make this, or any of my designs, I’d love to see photos of your work–you can post them on Facebook–and link to my design/add it to Favourites on Ravelry. Thanks for your interest in my patterns!
*****CANADIAN/US CROCHET TERMS USED*****
sc = single crochet; hdc = half double crochet; dc = double crochet; ch = chain; inc = increase; dec = decrease; * to * = repeat the instructions between the * – *
sc4 = make 1 single crochet in each of the next 4 (or other number given; and of course ‘dc4′ would mean ‘double crochet 4,’ etc.)
fpdc = front post double crochet; bpdc = back post double crochet
v-stitch = (dc, ch1, dc) all in the same stitch or in a ch 1 space–often in the centre ch1 of v-stitch the previous row, when I will say “v-stitch in v-stitch.”
Shell stitch= (2dc, ch2, 2dc) all in the same stitch
NOTES: I used ALL of 4 balls of Lang Yarns “Jawoll Cotton” (45 g=191 yards, so I used 764 yards). If you find yourself running short of yarn near the end:
1. you can use a contrast colour for the edging (the last 2 rows) or even starting with Row 45—the ch3 loops blend into the border.
2. you can stop after Row 50, as the Shell Stitch makes a very nice edging by itself, as this photo shows:
NOTE ABOUT THE EDGING: The Edging is a modified version of a pattern in a booklet called Edgings: 100 Old and New Favourites–original price, 15 cents–published by The Canadian Spool Cotton Company in 1945.
