Aerophile is a one-skein garter shawl with narrow wings that stretch wide like a soaring bird which loves to fly. Each wing is knit using short rows from a provisionally cast on central spine, while the scalloped top edge is created by casting on additional stitches every six rows. After both wings are complete, a super-picot edging binds off the live stitches along the bottom edge. Choose a beautiful yarn as the focus of the shawl, and let the uncomplicated ground and simple textural edgings highlight the fiber.
Gauge: 20 st and 40 rows/4" in garter stitch, after blocking.
