The Clothilde pattern is now available!  Thanks so much to my wonderful test knitters, Kate, Christine, Susanna, Bethany, Cyn, and Ellen, who got the job done in record time and gave me fabulous input to boot!  They are, to a woman, awesometastic.

Clothilde (pronounced kloh-TEELD) is a lace shawl knit in one piece from the center top outward. Utilizing traditional gull wing lace that flares into spear points at the edge, Clothilde is a good project for the intermediate lace knitter. With both written instructions and charts, knitters should be able to find their most comfortable way of following the pattern. The pattern can be easily customized by changing the number of repeats of either the Gull Wing or the Spearhead lace.

(Shown in Malabrigo Yarn Silky Merino 50% silk,
50% merino, 150 yds per 50g skein, 3 skeins used

  11. Tish McAllister Says:

    I was just gifted this pattern (ravelry) and I am so excited to cast on !!!!! I do have a question. In the stitch abbv you put that an SSK is slip one knitwise slip one purl wise. Is this right? I have always slipped 2 knitwise.
    THanks so much for your time and awesome pattern.

    • Kristen Says:

      Both are right – I just prefer the one I put in the pattern, which I got from It makes a decrease that lies a little flatter and (I think) matches the k2tog better. I had been doing it the other way up till I read about it, but I liked the look so much I make all my patterns use that version of the decrease. If you’re more comfortable with your way, or if you prefer the look, definitely ignore me on this one!

      Take care, and I hope you enjoy the pattern! Kristen
