81  KNITTING / Knitting: Discussion and Questions / Re: Lacy shawl pattern on: October 10, 2004 07:56:30 AM
If you're looking for a rectangular shawl, this one is lovely:


I made it last month, and it was a lot of fun. It's easy, but it looks fancy. The pattern is easy enough to memorize too. I used less than 2 skeins of Red Heart Luster Sheen, so the whole thing cost about $8. The yarn is acrylic, but it feels and looks like cotton.

That was me who posted over on Knitty. I made it light blue using Paton's Katrina. I agree- although I love this sweater, it was a bit mind-numbing to make. I originally picked this pattern because I wanted to try something a bit more difficult, but it was actually pretty boring. It took me nearly all summer to make it because I kept putting it down.  I'm really pleased with the results though.

I love it in red, gloriana!! It looks great on you!

These patterns probably aren't easier, but they may give you some ideas. There are some very cool color charts about 1/3 of the way down the page:


(and lots of cool patterns on the page too!)

NicoleJayne- no, you're not being thick.  Wink  I know just what you're talking about- it had me stumped for a few minutes too. It doesn't say in the directions that you need 2 each of the 8x10 pieces of lining, outer fabric, and interfacing. You can kind of make it out in the first picture that there are 2 pieces laying on top of eachother.  When you sew the first 3 seams, you are sewing the 2 pieces of lining together.  Then sew the 2 pieces of outer fabric together.

Hi NicoleJayne-
This bag took me about an hour using a machine, so it would probably take a lot longer than that by hand.  An afternoon? A couple of days? Maybe you could borrow someone's machine- this can be such a quick project. To answer your other question- you don't sew the longest side- the side that doesn't have the squares cut into it. This will become the top opening of your bag.  Sew the other 3 sides.

Hi everyone- this is my first post & my first Jordy bag. I have been lurking for a while and I am so impressed & inspired by all your purses! Thank you Jordy for posting such great directions. I whipped this up in no time, and I know I'll be making more.  Smiley
