Dolly’s Top-Down Tri Shawl (June KAL)

June’s project in the BOBBOL 2013 Series

BOBBOL 2013 is the nickname for Bits of Beads/Bits of Lace, and expands the popular Bits of Lace 2012 Series with additional types of small lace projects and the addition of projects for building skills in beading.

For June, we knitted Dolly’s Top-Down Tri Shawl. This project is a great way to have fun learning on a small shawl before putting the time into a larger shawl. While knitting this dolly shawl, you’ll learn the basics of shaping a top-down triangular shawl with a knit-as-you-go lace edging bindoff.

Beads are placed while knitting using the crochet hook method (or you can just omit the beads if you want to).

The size is suitable for 18″ – 20″ dolls and teddy bears, making it a delightful gift for a lucky doll or teddy bear lover!

    Hello! The June project is/was wonderful! This came in my e-mail yesterday:

    “Extra bonus! Tomorrow I am planning to post a brief outline for upsizing this doll-size pattern to adult size (or any size you want). Maybe make a coordinating doll and child size for a daughter/grand-daughter/niece/etc.? So check back again at the KnitHeartStrings site to be sure you catch that.”

    I have checked on your website today, but cannot find anything. I don’t want to miss it!!
    Many thanks

    I tried an adult-sized triangular shawl that looks similar to this. No matter what I tried I couldn’t get one side to mirror the other. sigh. I gave up.
    I’m going to try this as soon as I get a couple of other projects finished.
    Thank you for posting this! :)

      You are welcome. :)
      There is no need to mirror this pattern, so maybe you will have better luck here.
      Hurry and get those other projects finished so you can get started on your dolly shawl!

    Terrific! My great niece loved the other doll shawl so I definitely need to knit this for her also. She’s a little young yet so maybe without beads. Love knitting lace.

    Thank you, Jackie, for making this available to us. It’s adorable and a wonderful way to “swatch” for a larger piece.

  14. Darling pattern! Thanks so much.

    Is it possible to size this up to fit an adult?
