A laceweight shawl in the beautiful Gleem yarn!

Fyberspates Gleem is a blend of 55% Blue Faced Leicester wool and 45% Silk. It comes in gorgeous hand dyed semi-solid shades.

The shawl is a large elongated semi circle with a simple eyelet border. The laceweight yarn creates a lightweight fabric and the shawl shape is versatile.

This is a good next steps project for those looking to tackle a larger laceweight project. You do need a circular needle to hold all your stitches... but you could start with a straight needle before knitting them onto a 80cm (or longer) circular.

You can see our Gleem collection here. And check out our other laceweight yarns too.

Pattern free with any purchase and available for free on Ravelry soon.

Measures - approx 200cm long, 50cm at deepest

Yarn
- Fyberspates Gleem x 1 hank. You could also use Rowan Fine Lace x 2 balls (1 ball would be a good size too, just work less of the border, so you don’t run out!) Or for a striking stripey shawl, try 1 ball of the Schoppel Laceball 100.

Needle - circular 3.5mm x 80cm (At least). Click for our circular needle range.

Techniques
- cast on; work flat - back and forth; knit;purl; increase - knit, yarn over, knit into same stitch; yarn overs; knit 2 together (k2tog); cast off loosely.
