In her ongoing explorations of vintage knitting patterns, Carolyn Wyborny has been investigating how heavier-gauge knitting yarns impact vintage stitch patterns originally shown in very fine, firm yarns. She wanted to try a complicated edging in a heavier, softer yarn to create a dramatic statement.

Knowing that this project would be all about the edging, Carolyn needed one that would size up beautifully. When she saw “Knitted Lace, Fluted Design with Eyelets” from the September 1931 issue of Needlecraft Magazine, she knew it would be the perfect candidate for this venture into a DK-weight shawl. This edging is particularly interesting because it incorporates short rows in addition to alternating stockinette and reverse-stockinette sections to produce a more ruffled appearance.
