Basic Skills Necessary:

  • Techniques Used: cable CO, knit, increasing/decreasing, slipstitch colorwork, picot BO; slipstitch pattern is both written and charted, video tutorial for picot BO.

Pattern Description:

An elongated, asymmetrical wrap that combines the warmth and style of a shawl with the wearability of a scarf; Sundry means various or diverse, and this wrap features two colors, two stitch patterns and endless styling options. Cast on at the long, pointed end, Sundry has shaping at each end of rows that grow ever wider. Two colors contrast yet harmonize in solid garter stitch and houndstooth slipstitch sections; the slipstitch is easily worked using just one color per row. A simple picot bind off finishes the long straight end.

Gauge:

Gauge: 15 st and 30 rows/4" in garter stitch, after blocking. Gauge is not critical for this project, however a different gauge may result in a smaller or larger finished wrap, and different yardage requirements.

Sizing / Finished Measurements:

  • Size: 24" center depth and 112" on longest side, after blocking.

Materials:

  • Yarn: String Theory Hand Dyed Yarn Selku (50% silk, 50% merino; 375 yards); 1 skein MC & 1 skein CC, shown in Pewter (MC) & Alexandrite (CC). As written, this shawl uses almost every bit of yarn; see Designer's Notes for suggestions on adjusting for different yardage.

You Will Also Need:

  • Other Materials: US 7 40" circular needle. Yarn needle.
