I’m looking for a couple of kind people to test knit a shawl for me. It’s a lace crescent with optional beading, that will hopefully go up for sale on Ravelry next month. It’s an easy knit, much simpler than it looks. There is a plain knit section that can be either stockinette or garter as you prefer, and a very simple lace pattern, followed by a cobwebby mesh edging.

Stitches required are:
Knit, purl, YO, SK2P, SSK, K2tog, KYOK.

Your own choice of yarn weight and colour, and beading is optional.
My samples used 300m (328yd) of sock yarn for the green sample
and 335m (367yd) of light fingering, both on 5mm needles.

The pattern is both written and charted.

I’m looking for feedback on whether the pattern is clear enough, and perhaps a photograph or project page to put on Ravelry when it goes up for sale so people can see some examples besides my own.

If you’re interested and can knit up a shawl in the next couple of weeks, please email me, or comment below.
