The shawl starts with a provisional cast on for an applied border. Following this, are nine progressive lace patterns with garter stitch edges and rows of garter stitch between each section to give them each a nice frame. Beads are used in one of the patterns and on the borders. Once finished, you will have a gorgeous sampler shawl to showcase of your lace knitting skills!

A note on beads: Beads are added in Section #5 and in the borders. Look for high-quality beads with a consistent barrel opening. Bring your yarn when purchasing the seed beads to ensure that a doubled strand will slip through the bead using the crochet hook.

A note on gauge: Gauge is extremely crucial in this project from a yardage standpoint. Knit to the recommended gauge, the shawl uses five skeins with approximately 110 yards / 40g remaining. While the shawl doesn’t actually have to “fit”, properly sized stitches will use the recommended amount of yarn. Larger stitches use more yarn, potentially causing a shortage. Take the time to knit a swatch to assess the stitches, and change needle sizes if necessary.

Sock of the Month: “Spring in Japan” Socks

Meander through a cloud of pink blossoms in our "Spring in Japan" socks ...
Featuring Zen Yarn Garden's Serenity 20 yarn!

The ethereal blossoms of cherry trees are celebrated around the world, including in Washington, D.C. whose famous cherry trees were a gift of friendship from Japan in 1912 and 1965. But the most magical place to enjoy the blossoms is in Japan!

Every spring, people across Japan flock to parks, gardens and temples to partake in the annual ritual known as Hanami. This long standing custom of welcoming spring with a picnic and viewing of the beautiful "sakura" blossoms is a wonderful tradition.

In Japan, cherry blossoms are a symbol of clouds and an enduring metaphor for the ephemeral nature of life. With our "Spring in Japan" Socks you can capture the essence of the beautiful blooms to wear year round!
