Pattern Description:

An easy, fun accessory project to knit in your favorite sock-weight yarn. A bit of cabling and lace dress up the edge of basic garter stitch, and the simple repeat makes for soothing knitting.

Shawl is knit from side-to-side, starting and ending at the narrowest points.

For two-skein version, it is easy to adjust for different yarn weights or individual knitting style.

Sizing / Finished Measurements:

  • approx. 72 (100)? wingspan, 17 (22)? deep at widest point, after wet-blocking.

  • yarn: approx. 400 (800) yds fingering weight yarn. needles: size US 5 (3.5mm) 24? circular, or size needed to obtain gauge circular.
