Fuyu Persimmon shawl

Like the Fuyu persimmon fruit this shawl is named after, it’s fruity and succulent and suitable for a wide range of occasions. In this shawl, a delightful garter stitch based lace body is paired with a striped garter stitch border. The design is very flexible, therefore I’ve included modification ideas in the pattern.

This shawl is knit from the top-down in one piece, starting at the neck edge with a garter tab. The instructions for the body patterning are both charted and written out.

Difficulty level

This shawl is worked from the top-down, starting with a garter tab cast on. Stitches used include knit, k2tog, k3tog, yo, m1l, and m1r increases.

This pattern is therefor suitable for the intermediate knitter.

Sizes and finished measurements

Finished dimensions of the sample shawl: Span width of 186 cm (73 ¼ inches) measured along the upper edge, and a depth of 89 cm (35 inches), measured after blocking.

Change the size of this shawl by using lighter or heavier yarn and/or working fewer (or more) repeats of the various sections of the shawl. This will, of course, change the amount of yarn needed.
