Pattern Description:

Blight is a top down triangle shawl that is knit in one piece. It is a perfect one-skein project for fingering weight yarn.
The lace motif is somewhat inspired by the patterns of decay in nature - that beauty can be found anywhere, and that when it feels that nothing is left - there is still some room for hope (represented by tiny flowers in the edging).

The shawl can be made bigger or smaller by knitting more or less repeats of Chart B (additional yarn will be necessary if making it larger). The size can also be changed by changing yarn/needle size, (In lace weight yarn on 5s, DK weight on 8s, etc).

This pattern is fully charted. Experience knitting from charts is necessary.

Gauge:

Not essential to this pattern.
The sample as written was: 1 repeat of Chart B is approximately 2.5" square, relaxed after blocking.

Sizing / Finished Measurements:

  • 24" by 60" relaxed after blocking.

  • 1 skein 100g/437yd Fingering weight yarn
  • US 6 circular needles - 32" long

You Will Also Need:
