Free Knitting Pattern Candle Flame Shawl

The free knitting pattern Candle Flame Shawl is a beautifully designed asymmetrical shawl that offers both comfort and style to knitters looking for a new project. This pattern, submitted by a reader of AllFreeKnitting, is an ideal choice for those who enjoy creating shawls and are looking for an easy yet rewarding knitting experience.

The shawl starts with a simple cast-on of five stitches and grows through a series of easy-to-follow increases. The pattern features a one stitch increase (m1) and an eye-catching detail where seven stitches are knit out of one, which is made easier by using knitting needles one size larger than recommended for the yarn weight. This technique creates a stunning visual effect reminiscent of a candle’s flame, hence the name of the shawl.

The Candle Flame Shawl is designed to be versatile in size, allowing knitters to repeat the general pattern until the desired dimensions are reached. The pattern is suitable for yarn weight(3) Light/DK, with a gauge of 21-24 stitches to 4 inches, ensuring a delicate and lightweight fabric that drapes beautifully.

Knitters are advised to pay extra attention to the increase techniques, which are clearly illustrated in the tutorial photos provided with the pattern. The end result is a shawl that is not only easy to knit but also a pleasure to wear, with a comforting and elegant drape that makes it a perfect accessory for various occasions.

The Candle Flame Shawl is a testament to the creativity and sharing spirit of the knitting community, offering a pattern that is both accessible to beginners and enjoyable for more experienced knitters. It’s a project that promises a happy knitting time and a beautiful, functional shawl to enjoy.
