Mazerunner cover | The Knitting Vortex

Sinuous crossed paths run a maze around mesh diamonds on this triangle shawl worked from the bottom up. The crimpy fiber of the cormo creates a very lofty and bouncy fabric, giving the lace a refreshingly rustic and woolly dimension.

Techniques & Skills Used: longtail CO, knit/purl, cables, easy lace; this pattern is both fully written and charted.
Size: 60” wingspan and 26” depth; customizable.
Yarn: Sincere Sheep Cormo Fingering (100% Cormo wool; 500 yards/ 457m/113g); 1 skein, or 500 yards of wool/wool blend fingering weight yarn. The sample as written used the entire skein; you may want to have additional yardage on hand, as the shawl may easily be enlarged.
Other Materials: US 6 (4mm) 32” circular needle, or size to match gauge; Cable neede; Yarn needle.
Gauge: 20 st and 32 rows/4” in stockinette stitch, 20 st and 30 rows/4” in lace pattern after blocking. Gauge is not critical for this project, however a different gauge may result in a smaller or larger finished shawl, and different yardage requirements.
