Pana Frost Flower Shawl

Yep, I had this on my bucket list for over 2 years when I bought my passap machine. It is a fee pattern by FoldiKnits. Here is the link.

I started this shawl and when I got to row 13 you reset your row counter to 0. Okay, so now I look at section 2 and I realize you have to knit that section 3 times! I did not realize that but I continued on thinking this is going to take forever. And yep, it did! When I did the second half of the scarf I got it down to a day and a half!. I know I have at least 25 to 40 hours in this project and I am quite proud that I stayed with it and finished. I like the idea of making each half and grafting the two together. The funny thing is what kept me going is that I wanted to see it. Of course, on the passap the work has to be down quite a bit to see it underneath. So I was really motivated. When it got longer I was in awe of the design. When I finished the first half I did not feel like ” Oh no, now I have to do it again.’ I knew what I was doing the second time and it was much faster. I typed up the helpful tips for you if you want to make this.

Go to her sight and download the pattern. Make several copies of the graph on page six and you will see what to do with them in my directions.
If you don’t want to spend that much of your life on one of these, I think just doing each of the sections 2 times would look nice also. What I like about this is the directions she has are clear. There is a mistake on page 3. The second transfer down should say transfer stitch to the right.

I do have another passap project on my bucket list but this is enough for me now. I need something easy. lol Actually this was easy but very time consuming.  My hubby and friends wondered what happened to me since no one has heard from me. lol  I call my knitting room my woman cave and after being in there day and night, my husband is calling me a cave dweller. 🙂

I enjoyed doing this and watching the snow coming down by the inch while I was at it.

    Stunning. I’m not sure I would have your perseverance but it was well worth your effort.

    • I just thought it was so beautiful when I saw it years ago. That woman has some beautiful knits on her Ravelry site. Don’t know that I want to give up that much time again so soon. lol 🙂
      Thank you for the compliment.

    How incredibly well done of you. I have this on my own bucket list. Have admired the pattern since first seeing it. You have yourself a real treasure there, surely you must feel like a queen wearing it. Just lovely.

    • Thank you Tanya. Actually I would not have anywhere to wear this so don’t know what I will do with it. lol 🙂
      I liked the challenge.

    Very impressive. I’ve been bitten by the panna frost bug, as well. I don’t know if there is a cure, but I’m not sure I want one.

    Thanks for the inspiration.

    Terry in still below zero WI

  7. Carol Said:

    Thank you Terry! The only cure is to make one!

    Carol in zero degree in OH. 🙂

  8. Nancy Said:

    I’m just wondering if it’s possible to knit this on a Singer 700 and what the changes would be. Could you help with that? Thank-you

    • Hi Nancy I will send an email rather than go into in length on my blog. Carol 🙂

  9. Terry Nimmer Said:

    I have now made 2 complete and many partial shawls. I did it by creating a lace technique and breaking the pattern into several pieces. When downloaded to the E6000, the console prompts when to transfer stitches and the pushers indicate which stitches to transfer. I would guess it takes 8-10 hours to knit a shawl. An experienced knitter would be much quicker.

    Terry in finally above 0 WI

    • Hi Terry, Wow, you are way more advanced than I will ever be! Wish you lived near me !!!!
      Carol at O degrees in Ohio 🙂

      • Terry Nimmer Said:

        I don’t know about advanced. I just could not knit the pattern without a lot of help. So I convinced my E6000 to help me. That’s more of a testament to the Passap designer’s foresight than any ability I may have.
        Terry still shivering in WI
