Skills:

Flamenco is not a complicated knitting pattern, it is mostly a straightforward stockinette stitch. Beside the basic techniques, such as casting on, knitting and purling, you'll use the following techniques: 

  • picking up stitches;
  • yarn over;
  • purling 2 together;
  • increasing in between stitches;
  • reverse stockinette stitch;
  • using stitchmarkers.

 

Required materials:

 

Size:

The triangular Shawl will measure approx. 220-230 cm from the left tip to the right tip and from top to bottom approx. 100-105 cm.

 

About this project

This triangular Shawl is based on a simple stockinette stitch. It is knitted top down. The triangle is shaped by increasing on the edges and in the middle. 

The increasing interval for the stripes and the colour combination make this simple Shawl special. You let the yarn do the work.

You knit back and forth on the circular needle, because you'll soon have a large number of stitches on your needle. 

The 3 stitches at the start and end of each row are all knit stitches (garterstitch). This makes a nice edge to your Shawl. The stitch in the very middle remains a stockinette stitch. With stitchmarkers you can easily distinguish these 7 stitches.

The Main Colour is knit in stockinette stitch. The stripes in the Contrasting Colour are knit in the reversed stockinette stitch, with eyelets.

The distance between the stripes increases. You change colour on the same side each time. 

If you want to knit a larger Shawl, we advise to buy twice as much yarn. The further you knit, the longer your rows and the more yarn you'll need to increase the size a couple of centimeters. 

 

Pattern

 

Start:

  1. Cast on 3 stitches in the Main Colour. 
  2. Knit 6 rows in garter stitch (knit all stitches).
  3. Knit 3, pick up 5 stitches along the edge, pick up 3 stitches on the bottom. You now have 11 stitches on your needle. 
  4. Row 1 (right side):
    • Knit 3, place stitchmarker,
    • yarn over, knit 2, yarn over, place stitchmarker,
    • knit 1, place stitchmarker,
    • yarn over, knit 2, yarn over, place stitchmarker,
    • knit 3.

Part 1 in Main Colour:

  1. Row 2 (wrong side): knit 3, purl 9, knit 3.
  2. Row 3 (right side):
    • knit 3, move stitchmarker, 
    • increase 1 stitch in between the stitches, knit all stitches until you reach the stitchmarker, again increase 1 stitch in between the stitches, 
    • move stitchmarker, knit 1, move stitchmarker,
    • increase 1 stitch in between the stitches, knit all stitches until you reach the stitchmarker, again increase 1 stitch in between the stitches,
    • move stitchmarker, knit 3. 
  3. Wrong side: Knit 3, purl all stitches until the last 3 stitches, knit 3. 
  4. Right side: Knit 3, increase 1, knit all stitches until stitchmarker, increase 1, knit 1, increase 1, knit all stitches until stitchmarker, increase 1, knit 3. 
  5. Repeat step 3 and 4 until you have knit 10 rows of Part 1. 

Stripe 1 in Contrasting Colour

You have now reached a "going back" row on the wrong side of the work. Normally you'd purl this row. 

Instead you're going to knit the stripes in reverse stockinette stitch. You where you'd normally purl, you knit. And vice versa. 

At the same time you use the combination of yarn over & purl 2 together to create little eyelets in the stripe.

The first and last 3 stitches are always in garter stitch, so always knit these. 

Using the Contrasting Colour: 

  1. Row 1 (wrong side):
    • Knit all stitches until you reach the stitch in the very middle. 
    • Purl this stitch. 
    • Knit all stitches for the rest of this row.
  2. Row 2 (right side):
    • Knit 3 , move stitchmarker;
    • increase 1 stitch by purling in between the stitches;
    • at irregular intervals, make the eyelets with a yarn over - purl 2 together, until you reach the stitchmarker; 
    • increase 1 stitch by purling in between the stitches, move stitchmarker;
    • knit 1, move stitchmarker;
    • increase 1 stitch by purling in between the stitches;
    • at irregular intervals, make the eyelets with a yarn over - purl 2 together, until you reach the stitchmarker; 
    • increase 1 stitch by purling in between the stitches, move stitchmarker;
    • knit 3.

Part 2 in Main Colour:

Switch back to the Main Colour. 

The interval between the stripes gets larger, by knitting 2 extra rows for each part of the Main Colour.

So continue knitting in the same way as Part 1, only knit 2 extra rows before you switch to the stripe in the Contrasting Colour. 

Knit 12 rows of step 3 and 4 of Part 1.

Onwards

Knit Stripe 2 in the Contrasting Colour the same way as Stripe 1.

Part 3 in Main Colour: knit 2 rows more than you did for part 2. 

Again knit a Stripe in the Contrasting Colour. 

Part 4 in Main Colour: knit 2 rows more than you did for part 3.

And so on. Alternate between the Parts in the Main Colour and the Stripes, making the Parts in Main Colour larger each time. 

Knitting the edge

After 10 parts in the Main Colour (the last one is 28 rows) you start on the edge. 

The edge is knit in garter stitch, except for the stitch in the very middle. This one stays in stockinette.

Keep increasing before and after the stitch marker, on the right side of the work.  

  • This way, knit 4 rows in the Contrasting Colour; 
  • Knit 2 rows in the Main Colour;
  • Knit 6 rows in the Contrasting Colour; 
  • Knit 2 rows in the Main Colour;
  • Knit 8 rows in the Contrasting Colour; 
  • Knit 2 rows in the Main Colour;
  • Knit 10 rows in the Contrasting Colour; 
  • Cast off with the Main Colour. 

Lastly you weave in the loose ends and block your Shawl into shape. 

CONGRATULATIONS! Your Flamenco Shawl is finished and ready to use!
