Pattern Description:

Inspired by a simple leaf motif and the loveliest green yarn in my stash, I played with shawl-shaping and pattern-mixing, and after a few fits and starts, came up with this pattern. In either fingering or sport, the long arms allow for many different wrapping styles, and construction gives the piece a soft curve in back.

  • 84" wide, 18" deep at middle


  • Needles: US 5 (4mm) circular needle (24" or longer) OR size needed to get YOU the gauge YOU want for this shawl.

You Will Also Need:

  • Stitch markers
  • Darning needle

Suggested yarn:

600 yards of Sport weight

Preferred Brand/Yarn:

Blue Moon Fiber Arts BFL Sport
