How do you design a lace shawl?

IS anyone out there, who happens to be a reader of this here humble blog, have any clue on how to design and then knit up an idea for a shawl. I have so many designs I have written down, but no clue as to where to begin! How do I begin to design my very own lace shawl??

Until next time...

  1. Hi,

    I would like to know how to create a shawl pattern also. I emailed knitting daily and asked if they could post something on the subject, maybe if you and others ask the same question they might do it? Who knows. Doesn't hurt to try.

  2. Hi Rexenne -- I asked the very same question and posted it on a Shawl Knitters Yahoo Group and actually got a couple of responses which I can forward to you if you like. Apparently it can be done, and they say it's not hard to do, although it still goes over my head. Hey, if you can understand what they're saying, maybe you can make a video of it and teach ME! Ha! You can reach me at yarnaholic1963ATyahooDOTcom

  3. Mimknits has some tutorials on her site and Heirloom Knitting sell a huge book on it, called Heirloom lace surprising enough. You could check it out in a library.

    I hope that helps :)
    Blessed be.

  4. Have you checked out Knit Spot? Just a thought!


Thanks for the feedback! Most comments will be published right away except for you pathetic spammers who's messages will never see the light of day. If you are offended by having to fill one a "prove you are not a robot" form, my goodness...chill out! It takes two seconds to do and saves me a ton spam to have to filter through and it takes two seconds, MAX. If you are that easily offended, maybe you should simply not comment, and seek some counseling.
