Elegant and stylish with a spectacular lace border, this top-down semi-circularish shawl transitions from stocking stitch to the billowing border all in single rows.
A lacy edging is knitted along as you go. Shaping is made by paired increases.
Pattern is written out line by line and also charted.
There are two sizes to choose from, a generous shawl and a slightly smaller version. The pattern can easily be scaled up or down. Stitch counts and calculations for this are provided.
Tiong Bahru can be worked in cobweb to heavy laceweight in silk, silk-blends or wool.
Tiong Bahru is a suburb and subway stop on the East-West Line in Singapore - I just like the name, especially the way it’s enunciated with gravitas and faultless clarity on the tube.
