Emily Explains: Getting Started With Chock

In the summertime, I love having a simple shawl at hand in case I need to cover up from the sun or a cool breeze. Chock, a beautiful lace pattern from Norah Gaughan vol. 14, knit in Maya is a perfect choice. When you’re just casting on, you’ll want to knit somewhere quiet, maybe in the park or a secluded section of the beach. Once you’ve knit a section or two, you’ll better understand how the pattern repeats work, and you will be able to bring it along with you to your knitting group. The pattern is mainly charted but there are some important written instruction as well.  As you follow along your chart, be sure to refer back to your written pattern.   NGV14_Chock-1174 I made a how-to video to help you with some of the trickier parts in the first section. Grab your Chock project and follow along.

You can share your progress and look for more pattern tips in the Chock KAL, hosted with our friends at Creative Knitting in the Berroco Lovers Group on Ravelry. Chock is available at your LYS, Ravelry or on the Berroco website. The KAL starts this Friday, July 18th! join-our-chock-knit-along Happy Making! Emily
