Textured Triangle Shawl Knit Along-Section 2

Today Section 2 of the Textured Triangle Shawl video tutorial series has been released! This is the second KAL I am hosting on my blog with Red Heart and includes a full set of HD videos of me demonstrating how to do each step of the shawl!

Section 1 was released last week and I have been enjoying seeing all of your great progress photos in the Facebook page. If you haven’t joined yet please head over to our KAL Facebook page and request to join. We love sharing and seeing everyone’s progress.

Section 2 is our first work through of the lace pattern. Section 1 had the basics of what you will need to know for the lace section. The lace in this pattern is made by a purl 2 together and a yarn over. Below you will find the line by line instructions for this section, just like the last. I put this together for you to make it easier to keep track of where you are in the pattern. You can mark each row off as you complete it.

The Date:

The official start date is May 3, 2017 and runs through May 30, 2017. There will be one video released each week along with the pattern instructions for that section. You will find a full schedule at the end of this post with links as they are available.

Section 1 Follow Up Notes:

After releasing the section 1 video I received some feedback that my video did not match the written pattern exactly. I should have been more clear when explaining the first video that I did slightly change the way that the pattern is worked to make it easier, in my opinion, for beginner knitters.

In the written pattern you will see that it tells you to kfb, k2 at the end of the row. My video told you to kfb, k1. I decided to do this so that both sides would be a mirror image and would be easier to remember. Either way will give you the same overall result. To make it easier I have added to columns to my line-by-line instructions so you can follow along if you are following my videos or following the written pattern without getting confused. For more clarification you can watch the FB live video that I did below.

Whichever way you decide to work your shawl BE CONSISTENT. Once you start with one increase at the end of the row continue that way throughout the pattern. Otherwise you will notice the difference.

Here is the FBLive Q & A for section 1 I did:

Section 2-Lace Pattern:

Section 2 is shorter than our first section. You will be working the lace section, where you see the holes of the pattern. As you have been working the spine of your shawl you were creating a lace section down the middle. You will continue with the same technique but now it will be across the entire row.

Be sure to watch the video all the way through if you are new to lace so that you can see how to work each row.
