The large lace holes in the Dartmeet shawl remind me of the big round rocks found in the river that runs through the tiny hamlet of Dartmeet on Dartmoor, South West England. The shaping creates gentle folds of soft fabric when worn wrapped around your neck.
Short rows are worked in garter stripes and an easy lace hole pattern which is also repeated across the whole shawl. Dartmeet is worked from the top down with increases every other row to create the crescent shape.
I will be posting a video tutorial on Monday as part of Monday Mini Tip Tutorial on how to work the German short rows used in this pattern. It's the easiest short rows to learn. The following Monday, I will post a video of how I blocked this crescent shawl.
I recommend starting with a Garter Tab cast on but a regular cast on will also work. If you're new to the garter tab cast on, I have a tutorial here.
I've been wearing this shawl a lot lately and it's gorgeous. I'm getting so many compliments when I wear it!
