Lieselotte Shawl is the perfect beginner shawl and lace project, or a comfort project for the experienced knitter. Shawl is worked from the top down using lifted increases, with a very simple lace worked at the bottom edge. The i-cord bind off gives it a clean finish, though is not as stretchy as some other bind offs. Try working the bind off in a larger needle size if this is an issue, or instead work several rows of garter stitch before casting off.

Lieselotte Shawl Pattern includes three sizes, the smallest of which should use only 2 skeins of Brooklyn Tweed Loft. Our kit include 3 skeins of Loft.
Needles Used: US size 4 (3.5 mm) circular 32 inch or longer.
Gauge: 17 sts and 28 rows in 4” in stockinette stitch after blocking

More about Brooklyn Tweed Loft

Handle gently while knitting, then wet block to see Loft bloom into full beauty.

Fiber Characteristics
Targhee-Columbia wool is sourced from Wyoming to make Shelter, Loft, and Quarry – this breed’s lofty, warmth-trapping fleeces deftly combine the softness and elasticity of fine wool Targhee with the robust substance and warmth of medium wool Columbia. This fiber’s versatile mingling of wearability and durability particularly shines in woolen-spun yarns and is wonderful for next-to-skin wear, outerwear, and heirloom pieces for the home.
