Mock Mesh Shawl Pattern and Video

The Mock Mesh Shawl

Mock Mesh Shawl

The way you decide to wear the Mock Mesh Shawl will create more warmth or more elegance. Wrap several times around the neck and chest will be made for a very warm cowl type of winter wear. The loosely draped will open up the stitch and allow the breezy through the fabric. But the best part of this shawl is that it will look just as well over a simple t-shirt or that little black evening dress.

The pattern is a simple one and follows the stitch pattern that was posted HERE. Below is a step by step video tutorial for us visual learners.  Hope you guys like it .

Supplies for the Mock Mesh Shawl.

Loom: Any Extra Large Loom with at Least 41 Pegs. Used the Yellow Knifty Knitter in the featured sample.

Yarn: 400 yards of Worsted Weight. I used Bernat Handicrafter 100% Cotton in Intense Blue Ombre for  featured sample. There is enough yarn left over for a matching hat.

Hook: Any loom knitting hook. Used the Knifty Knitter with a Grip. Crochet Hook

Beads: Approximately 30 Large Hole Beads

It’s a good idea to tighten the loose loops from the cast on before adding the fringe.

    Thank you Denise . Tightening the loops on the cast on edge was helpful. Next time I will try modifying bind off further as you suggested. It’s all finished and I even wore it once. Thanks for the pattern and the help!!!

      Awesome Terri! and …Thanks for taking the time to update me – that is actually not very common and it’s soooooooooooooooooooooooo appreciated.

    Denise, my bind off end is tighter and therefore much more narrow than the cast on end of the mock mesh shawl. How do I prevent this from happening?

    • Denise Canela October 12, 2016 at 12:42 am

      Terri did you use the Modified Basic Bind-off?

      • Terri October 12, 2016 at 10:47 am

        Yes, I did use the Modified Basic Bind-off. Maybe I didn’t do it correctly? I could send you a picture of what it looks like, but I don’t know how to add them here. Thanks for responding, I have learned how to loom knit from your videos and I have had such fun. This is the first time I’ve gotten “stuck”. I don’t think it is a big deal on this piece because it’s not like both ends will be lined up when I’m wearing it. Just wanted to avoid whatever mistake I was making for the next piece. Thanks!!

        • Denise Canela October 12, 2016 at 10:24 pm

          2 things – did you tighten your cast-on and you can consider modifying the bind-off in a smaller sequence like every 3 instead of every 5 – does that make sense?

      • Terri Kober October 12, 2016 at 8:33 pm

        Hi Denise, Yes, I did use the Modified basic bind-off. Maybe not correctly? Or maybe the issue is on cast on end? Is there a way to upload a picture so you can see it? I don’t think it will matter much because wearing it the ends won’t be matched up anyway. I would just like to know what I am doing wrong so I don’t keep doing it. I’m fairly new to loom knitting, I really enjoy it (thanks to your videos, you are a great teacher!) Thanks for the help.

          oops, first I didn’t see my earlier response posted so I tried again… Now they are both there. sorry for that!

    Wow! loving this mile a minute stitch.Love Cowls , infinity or blanket style sized scarves. Now I know what to do with the team spirit yarn I stowed away last December. Thanks so much! This website has become a favorite. Am a lefty who never got the hang of knitting w needles. I wish these looms had been around when I was a kid.

    • Denise Canela October 3, 2016 at 7:58 pm

      Love that first word – Wow ! And .. Thanks for the Thanks Lydia you’ve made my day! 🙂

    Hi Denise! LOVE the shawl and can’t wait to try it. I was just wondering…does it matter what kind of yarn I use? I know you used cotton, and I have quite a bit of cotton yarn. I’m worried that it might be a little stiff. Yours didn’t look that way, but wondering if wool or acrylic would work as well. Thanks for another awesome video 🙂

    • Denise Canela October 3, 2016 at 8:14 pm

      Hey My Friend – actually it’s not stiff at all – very nice and light weight. Still, you can use any yarn – pattern is Big Time Flexible. Let me know how it goes – and you know it have to share those pics 🙂

    Don’t know why my comment has all those question marks when I only tapped on one of these :- ! Lol.

  6. Wilda September 30, 2016 at 6:55 pm

    Love the shawl. ???????? did you put fringe on one end only, or on both ends ? Thank you for your help.

    • Denise Canela October 3, 2016 at 8:14 pm

      Hey Wilda ! Yes I put it on both ends.

      • Wilda October 3, 2016 at 10:51 pm

        Thank you ! ???? I love the shawl and have been thinking about it all weekend. I like the way you did the fringe also.

        • Wilda October 3, 2016 at 10:54 pm

          I don’t know what’s with this thing putting question marks when I put an explanation point (!)

        • Denise Canela October 4, 2016 at 11:01 pm

          Thanks Wilda !!!!
