Candle Flame Shawl (With Border Tutorial!)
There's a lot of talk about this shawl in the General Forum, and I think it belongs in a Knit Along. The pattern can be found HERE. It's a really easy pattern, and great for a first shawl!

Here's mine so far. I'm using Knit Picks Wool of the Andes in Pewter, and #9 needles.

Me too!
Ok...I'll be brave and say yes! I have to get my yarn first and finish a couple of things I'm working on! LOL!

Ok...I confess...I WAS the new knitter that said,"I'll never have more than one thing on the needles...I'll finish that before I start something else!" So much for that!

Seriously, I'm not exactly sure when I can start this...does that matter?

Thanks,
Merry

No, it doesn't matter when you start it. Don't worry, I'm sure we all said "only one project at a time" at one time. Have the majority of us gone through with it, no!

I have the yarn for this and the pattern. I'm supposed to be making this for my mother. I started Lady Eleanor (entrelac shawl) though, and both of these are big projects. Hmmmm...do I put Eleanor on hold and start this or do I keep going on Eleanor? Tempting. I'll give it some thought.

As always, ContiKnitter, your work is perfect.

Needle Size?
Contiknitter,
You are using $9 needles with a Bulky weight...if I use a worsted weight yarn, should I maybe use #8 needles? What do you think?
Thanks,
Merry

I would love to knit this but I am fairly new to knitting and don't understand this part:


- Garter Stitch Border -

CO 10 sts.
K 9, Sl 1, (K 2 tog, pass sl st over), turn and knit back out to to the edge of border.
Continue in this manner until all the stitches along the top have been worked.
BO 10 sts loosely.
Weave in loose ends


Cast on? Where and how? I've seen this before about casting on in the middle or something like that and don't understand it. Or am I just reading it wrong?

Also, would Plymouth Encore Chunky work well do you think? There is a beautiful color I would like to use called Garnet.

MerryKnitter- Yes, You probably should use smaller needles, as this is not a lace fabric.

SpectorKitty- I'm just planning to do a garter stitch border on the top, as the instructions for the border aren't very good.

ps- Plymouth Encore would be great! Any worsted/bulky wool/wool blend would be good for this.
