Reminiscence Shawl Pattern for Sale

Reminiscence is a crescent-shaped shawl worked from the bottom up. I really enjoyed working on this shawl as the repeats are easy to memorize yet not boring. The lace pattern is on both RS and WS rows so there are no rest rows or purl rows. There are a few stitches that are new to me and are very interesting to knit.

Pattern includes charts and written directions, and stitch count totals for every row. I also include the number of stitches to cast on and the yardage for a different number of repeats.

Technical Editor: Chaitanya Muralidhara

Suggested yarn: Any sock yarn.
I used Wollmeise 100% Merino Superwash (Zarte Knospe color) 1 skein (150g, 574 yards) for 29 repeats (I only had enough yarn left to weave in and nothing more, so I suggest to do 28 repeats if you use same yarn).

Size Available: See table below

Finished size for 28 repeats: 163 cm (64.25”) wingspan, 49 cm (19.25”) depth

Level: Advanced

FO: Reminiscence Shawl

I am really really happy with the result of this shawl after blocking. I think I picked the right yarn for the right pattern. The yarn really showcases the texture of the pattern well.
I wore this shawl several times already and it stays put on my shoulder without a pin because of the shape.

I decided to name this shawl Reminiscence, because during the making of this shawl, my aunty passed away. She is my mother’s big sister. She used to play with me a lot when I was a little girl and I love to spend weekend at her house. When I heard from my mother the news that she passed away in her sleep, I could not help but to reminisce the past.

Now, about the details part:

Reminiscence Shawl

This is my new shawl. Still in the unblocked state, but I will reveal how it looks like after blocking soon when I am ready to publish the pattern. It's been a long time since I published Liliiflora in May, so I think it's about time to publish new pattern soon.

This is my first time to use Wollmeise yarn. I must say that I love that yarn. I really feels like cotton, however since I love cotton, I really no complain about it. I will definitely use this yarn again soon!
