Lady of Rohan is a simple, elegant rectangular shawl knitted on the bias to create a large chevron. The lightweight, airy nature of the fabric makes it perfect for keeping the chill off on cool summer evenings, but it will also keep you warm during the chillier months of spring and autumn. It is knitted with larger needles than are normally used with fingering weight yarn, resulting in a stretchy, airy fabric. This pattern is highly customizable, and I have included a pattern recipe along with the specific instructions in case you would like to alter the design to your preferences.

    Gauge 
    The key to gauge in this pattern is not so much getting the correct number of stitches in a certain space as ending up with a knitted fabric that you love. I used larger needles than normal for a fingering weight yarn, because I wanted a light and airy fabric that would be suitable even for warmer seasons. My gauge was also not completely consistent throughout the sample in these photos, but because the material is so stretchy, the variations in gauge don’t really show. The sample is unblocked. That being said, my gauge was approximately: 17 sts X 24 rows = 4” in stockinette
