DON'T LET THE LIGHT GO OUT


My very first piece of lace was the rectangular Candle Flame Shawl, the pattern for which I obtained for free from KnitPicks. It was WAY too difficult for First Lace, but I ended up getting the hang of it and knit a gorjus shawl.

I very much want to knit another shawl -- in a gold/apricot heather alpaca lace -- but when I went to KnitPicks to download the pattern, I discovered that they no longer have it offered to the public. And I don't have it downloaded to my computer.

Does anyone have it? I would very much love a copy. I really want this pattern because the candle motif would be the perfect motif for a shawl for Norbert's bar mitzvah tutor.

Thank you!
Thank you! Thank you! I have the pattern, I have the correct needles, and I have enough yarn. Now I know what my next project will be. Now I just need to finish my WIP so I can start! (Only about 4 feet left on a shawl. So I should be done in 3 weeks or so.)

Knitter's Shawls and Scarves book has a rectangular shawl with a candle motif. I have knit it twice using different weights and adjusting the stitch count.

I just sent you a copy of the pattern. Since it was offered for free (and since I'll probably never knit it) I have no problem sharing from my hoard of patterns with you. Enjoy the knitting!

It is still on the site, just labeled as "Candle flame scarf". The pattern has both the shawl and scarf. I do have the pdf if needed.
