    Nancy Whitman Patterns - Finley Breese Morse Code Shawl - PDF DOWNLOAD

    Samuel F.B. (Finley Breese) Morse invented the original Morse Code in the 1830s. As we know it today, the dots and dashes of Morse Code translate well for slip stitch color patterns, making it easy to write something in your knitting. In Nancy Whitman's shawl, each broad stripe ends with three lines of Morse Code that repeat a single knitting term. From right to left, the shawl reads Needles, Yarn, Cast On, Knit, Purl, and Bind Off.

    Nancy Whitman Patterns - Lana - PDF DOWNLOAD

    Lana begins like a traditional top-down shawl, then it is joined and worked in the round. Two-color garter stitch stripes give way to a wide knit border with staggered purl stitch accents. Two skeins of the Plucky Bello yarn will make two identical cowls, or reverse the colors on the second cowl. Lana is quick to knit and easy to wear, adding warmth without bulk.

    Nancy Whitman Patterns - Pipes - PDF DOWNLOAD

    Pipes is a bias knit garter stitch shawl that is made up of two simple rows of knitting with increases worked at the start of every right side row. Just when you are ready for something more than rows of garter stitch, you begin the striped "pipe" section. Ten of the pipes have extensions that connect them to the next pipe. Extensions are worked over four rows using intarsia for color changes. The shawl is completed with a second main color section.
