Daisy Rectangular Shawl by LDSVenus

2nd Comfort Shawl Finished 002

2nd Comfort Shawl Finished 001





Bare with me as I am not a pattern writer.  I can read them, but writing them is a different subject :).

Also please note, the daisy lace design it self is not my design and appears to be an old Shetland lace pattern, I did however design the placement on the shawl and can therefore share this pattern.  There was a picture showing the heirloom daisy lace pattern, however the website moved to Etsy and no longer shows that daisy pattern.

Do remember I offer this pattern for you to make the shawl, but you may NOT give this pattern out to someone else.  Please direct them to this site to share the pattern.  You may use this pattern to make gifts, or to donate to charity, note that means you may give the finished shawl, you may NOT give out the shawl pattern.  Also there is a issue with one of the pattern rows being a little offset, someone on Ravelry gave a fix to it but I have not had to the time to re-knit it ot put a fix in, I’ll link to her fix, hope that helps.  With that out of the way, please enjoy my design.

B = border = k3
k = knit
p = purl
k2 tog = knit 2 together
yo = yarn over – note yo twice is a double yo and on the purl rows you will knit the first yo and purl the 2nd yo.
ssk = slip, slip, knit  (see the following site  : http://www.knittinghelp.com/videos/decreases )
* * = repeat between the * to end .

This is a diagonal design rather than horizontal or vertical and by shifting the design on rows 13-19 over two stitches at the beginning you can probably accomplish a vertical design.  This is worked from side to side so the cast on is the width.  I used approximately a baby weight to light sport weight yarn and  size 7 needles.

cast on 112 stitches.

Knit 3 rows for garter stitch border and keep 3 stitches on each end for border through out..

Rows 1, 5 and 9:  B, k6, *k2 tog, yo twice, ssk, k14*, end k6 instead of 14, B.

Rows 2 and all even rows – the pattern ends with row 22:  B, p to last 3 stitches, B  (please note above how to pearl the double yo’s).

Rows 3, and 7: B, k4, *k2 tog, yo twice, ssk, k2 tog, yo twice, ssk, k10*, end k4 instead of 10, B.

Row 11: B, knit to last 3 stitches, B.

Rows 13, 17, 21: B, *k14, k2 tog, yo twice, ssk*, end k14, B.

Rows 15, & 19: B, k12, *k2 tog, yo twice, ssk, k2 tog, yo twice, ssk, k10*, end k14 instead of 10, B.

Row 21: B, knit to last 3 stitches, B.

Repeat these 22 rows until the shawl is the desired length. .

End with 3 rows of garter stitches (knit every row, keeping with the border already established) and bind off..

Hopefully I did not make any errors in writing this, if I did please drop me a line and let me know so that I can correct it on the page.

*I seem to be off on my design so that one of the rows is closer than the others, when I figure out how to correct it I will up date the pattern.  It is a design error and not pattern error.  It has been addressed with a fix here by MaryMaryKnits on Raverly.  Eventually when I get some time I will go back and readjust my pattern when I can knit it again to make sure I get it right :).

  2. Hi:-)

    First of all I want to thank you for the free pattern. However, I cannot finish this shawl for the following 2 reasons.

    1) The first set of daisies turned out fine. However, the second set of the daisies have only 5 petals around the center round.

    2)The rows 13, 17 and 21 had 2 extra stitches at the end, though it all added up to 112 and everything was knitted exactly as directed. Thought you may want to know to correct the pattern.

    Thank you.


    • I and several people have knit this shawl and did not find a problem with the number of petals, there is however a small problem with offset on one of the patterns. There is a shawl that was knit on ravelry and she addressed this problem. I will go back and correct it when I have a chance to knit this shawl again so I can see where the problem was. Life has been rather hectic for me at the present time, until I get a chance to reknit this shawl, you can go and check out the other shawls knit from this pattern on Ravelry and see what her correction for this offset problem was. Sorry 😦
