Sorbetto

DSC04180
As quick and easy as eating sorbet on a Summer's day, this little triangle shawlette is just the pick-me-up for any wardrobe. Whether you toss it over your sunkissed shoulders in the cool evening breeze or reach for it in the frequently over air conditioned indoors, it's the perfect size to keep in your bag for anytime you need a little extra warmth. Made with fingering weight yarn, it's a great introduction to lace or a quick gift that will be much appreciated. Smaller than most traditional shawls, it's easy to wear and very adaptable, no matter where life takes you. Make it in your favorite bright shade for a little pop of color, or in a classic neutral for wear-with-anything ease. It can also be easily adapted to other yarn weights and made bigger or smaller as your needs dictate.

Pattern is both fully charted and in written out format and includes thorough directions for making the shawlette as well as notes for adjusting the size and using different weights of yarn. As shown, it is 60 inches across the top and 27 inches from the top edge to the lower point. It uses 500 yards of fingering weight yarn and US 6 (4.0 mm) needles. Shown in Spud and Chloe Fine in Glowworm colorway (80% Superwash wool/20% silk, 248 yards/227 meters per 65 gram skein).

Ok never mind the "soon". I just got it! Now I'm going to sit down and read it and decide which yarn I'm going to use.
Thank you for a lovely pattern!

Hi Melanie,
I'm getting ready to start Sorbetto. Check the charted directions. The black dots are saying that we need to knit on the wrong side...the pattern says purl on the wrong side. Just wanted to let you know!!

Just to clarify on SassySean's comment, the pattern is correct. The last few rows of edging are a garter stitch lace to prevent curling at the edge and it doesn't realy show in the photos. It barely shows in "person" on Sorbetto, but it does prevent the curling.

Happy Knitting!
