  • Techniques & Skills Used: provisional CO, backwards loop CO, knit, increasing, short rows.

Pattern Description:

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.

Sizing / Finished Measurements:

  • Size: one size; approximately 52" wingspan and 18" depth from top edge to bottom point.

  • Yarn: Dream In Color Smooshy (100% merino, 450 yards/100g); 1 skein, shown in Deep Seaflower. Sample used approximately 425 yards of light fingering weight yarn.

You Will Also Need:

  • Other Materials: US 6 40" circular needle, or size to match gauge. Scrap yarn for provisional CO and stitch holder. Yarn needle.
