Electric Love by Samantha Guerin Designs | Electric Love is a luxurious, oversized bias wrap that features two-color brioche, garter stitch, stockinette, and deceptively simple lace. The shawl is cast on with just a few stitches and brioche increases all the way up to the full width of the shawl. Transition to easy stockinette and garter ridges before working a very easily memorized lace panel. Take a break with more stockinette and garter stitch before beginning your brioche decreases right down to the end of the shawl. A bonus? Only seven stitches to bind off.

Gauge: 23 sts & 32 rows / 4” in stockinette stitch (*Note: exact gauge is not essential for this project, but knitting at a different gauge may affect the yardage requirements.)

Finished Measurements: Wingspan: 106”, Width: 19”

Other Details: To customize your shawl, you can choose to knit in two or three colors. The two-color brioche portions of the shawl require approximately 840 yds total, or two skeins of fingering weight yarn. You can knit the garter ridge and lace portion in a third color, if desired. This section requires approximately 420 yds, or one skein of fingering weight yarn. The shawl is symmetrical. If you are concerned about running out of yarn, you can eliminate some repeats of the lace portion without much impact to the finished design. Weigh your yarn halfway through the lace to see if you’ll have enough to complete the shawl.
