Cameo Shell Stitch Shawl
Pattern available free at : http://www.straw.com/cpy/patterns/scarves/cameo-shawl.html
Yarn used is Berroco Pleasure about 7-8 balls (I forgot)
There are a few typos/errors in this pattern. Here are my corrections/clarifications:
Clarifications to make it easier to understand for beginner knitters. My changes are in blue:
Begin Shell Pattern
Row 4 K2, yo, K to pattern marker, K4 (P8, K5) end last rep K4 instead of K5, sl pattern marker, K to 1 st before center marker, yo, K1, sl marker, K1, yo, [color=blue]K to pattern marker[/color], rep between * last pattern marker, K to last 2 sts, yo, K1, sl1.
Row 6 … K to 1 st before center marker, yo, K1, sl marker, K1, yo, [color=blue]K to pattern marker,[/color] rep between * to last marker …
Row 8 … K to last 2 sts, [color=blue]yo, K1[/color], sl1.
Pattern change: I did not like the large holes going down the center of the back so I knit those yo’s through the back loop to make them smaller. I think it made it look a bit nicer.
Overall, the pattern is not too bad…although I did have to frog a few rows here and there. Once you get to the shell stitch you might want to turn the TV off
I’ll try to take another picture when I’m done blocking it. It is still wet in these pictures. Oh…and I chose to block it with a wavy edge because the yarn decided that’s what it wanted to do.
