“'Creekside' Shawl By Joann Rogers”
Description
The entire shawl is worked back and forth in rows. Full and half hexagons make up the body of the shawl. Stitches are picked up from the straight edge of the finished hexagon body and worked to form the garter stitch border. The hexagon shape makes the most of the gorgeous color runs in Noro's Silk Garden and the garter stitch border blends all the colors together for a finished, polished look.

NEEDLES AND STITCHING:
US size 9 (5.5mm) needle. Hexagons are knitted back and forth in rows and can be worked on straight or circular needles. To work the border's long rows, use one very long circular needle or several shorter circulars to accommodate the large number of stitches. Stitch markers and a tapestry needle are also needed.


Gauge is 17sts and 23 1/2 rows to 4" in Stocking Stitch after blocking. Each hexagon's side is 4 1/4".
