    Thanks so much for sharing this with us!

    Happy Knitting!

    Thank you so much for posting the shawl pattern and part I of your border tutorial.
    I have my yarn, needles and your shawl pattern/ instructions, so am all set to knit my first shawl.
    I am learning so much from your knitting blog and am eagerly waiting for you to post Part II of the tutorial.
    Thanks for sharing your expertise with all of us.

      Dianne, that yarn was a wonderful nubby cotton that knitted up to a worsted weight. I try to keep a bit of yarn with the label but I can not seem to find that one in my files. If I come across it, I’ll let you know. Just posted the pattern today. Let me know if you have any questions. ~Jill

    I was wondering if you ever had a chance to post the pattern for the bottom of the yellow shawl with the fringe edging?

    Thanks!

    I am going to try and knit the green shawl that has the leaf design at the bottom. What size needles did you use. and is this the complete instructions to that shawl. I am new and knitting a shawl.? How many stitches did you cast on at the beginning?
    I have size 6 circular needles. I am knitting a scarf right now with them. When I get through I will start the shawl. If this is not the complete instructions could you email the instruction me. I only have 426yds and it is Meriono Wool 60 %acrtylic. Cascade Yarns Pacific.

      Marieva, 426 yards should be enough to complete the shawl with border. I have not put together the pattern for the leaf edge shawl but just posted the cable and fringe border edge. Jill

    I need the instructions for the border the leaf design along the bottom edge. Could you send it to me by email. It looks really easy and I would like to try it.

      Marieva, I just posted the knitted on cable fringe border. The leaf pattern is knitted on in the same way… in fact, any charted lace edge pattern can be used to knit onto the lower edge of the shawl. Cast on the appropriate number of stitches and on every right side row, knit one stitch from your edge together with one stitch from the body of your shawl. On the next row (ws) slip that first stitch. I hope to create a pattern for the leaf shawl specifically but this last pattern literally took me two years so… no promises. Jill

      Hi, yes, I used 10 1/2 needles and the yarn is probably considered bulky – but with some very thin parts as well. I like working with nubby yarn that gives the fairly simple piece a lot of texture and interest.

    HI Jill,
    I may be behind the times here! I have come across your free shawl patterns and I really like the green shawl with the leaf border and the optional borders. Have you any additional instructions please that you could email me so that I could have a go at making this item? Thank you so much for your help, very much appreciated.

      Hi Christine, sorry it’s taken me so long to get back to you…. I’m just now finding the time to write that traveling leaf border for the shawl pattern. My day job recently ended (yippeeeee!!!) so I’ll now have the time to really tackle my to-do list. Should be available by mid-August if you’re still interested. I’ll post it in my etsy shop with a link here… Thanks for your patience! Jill

    I loved your triangle green shawl too much but need all the pattern with traveling leaves border . Can you help me? I’m not good on knitting so need more instructions for the body of the shawl and for the traveling leaves border. And one more question, is it possible to make the body of the shawl longer?

      Hi Fulya, sorry it’s taken me so long to get back to you… yes, you can certainly make the body of the shawl longer. That’s up to you. As for the pattern with the traveling leaves, that is next on my agenda! My day job recently ended (Yeah!!!) and now I’ll have time to create more patterns, plus stained glass and wire knit jewelry for my etsy shops! Stay tuned! Jill

      Hi Deonne, I have not had a chance to create that pattern quite yet but I have moved it to the top of the list! Now that my day job has ended (can I say “yippee!!!”) I’ll have time to devote to creating knitting patterns, stained glass items and wire knit jewelry for craft shows and my etsy shops. As soon as it’s available, I’ll let you know! Thanks for the nudge, I needed that! Jill
