    Looking for a pattern for "waterfall" shawl

    I see photos waterfall cardigans in many places - and would really like to make it as a shawl - has anyone by chance come across such a pattern? - if not as a shawl, then as a cardi, as I think it can be adjusted by omitting the sleeves - if it's already for the knitting machine, that's a plus, but even hand-knitted patterns would work

    I've also seen the pattern as a vest, which is even better than a shawl

    I found a great pattern for a waterfall vest - it's crocheted, but I'm sure it's easy to convert to knitting

      I'm thinking about knitting the back piece from the hem up - then pick up stitches from the sides to knit the front panels - knitting with stripes it could look interesting (if I knit this with the machine) - or maybe knit as seed stitch to avoid curling

      Found this collection of waterfall cardigans - some free, some paid - that might provide some inspiration.

      Not really sure what you mean by a waterfall shawl. Are you looking for a rectangular shape with asymmetrical ends?

      Ok, going to make a guess here. Adding a ink to Remade By Hand's website. Check out her pattern "Understoried". It has the angled ends that gives it a "waterfall" effect. I bought the pattern awhile ago, but haven't made it yet. I have made the "Birchgrove Cowl" and it's great. Her patterns can be purchased through Ravelry, or through her site.

    Woolfan - thank you for the links! - calling the waterfall effect a shawl was a mistake on my part - looking closer at the patterns, I meant a vest - as it is a plain rectangle I think I'll start with that and then maybe try the seamless cardigan - the link you posted is exactly what I was looking for

    the shawls/wraps look very nice and I like your choices best!

      sheiskanen - glad you could find something of use! Also, if you search on your web browser for "knitted waterfall vest patterns", or words to that effect, there are quite a few hits. Yes, you are on the right track with the rectangles, and that should work well with machine knitting! I do love the "waterfall" drape, and look forward to seeing what you make. :-)

      Thank you for your kind words on my Remade By Hand choices. I'm not much for colorwork, but I like her designs a lot!
