Winged Samara is a crescent shaped shawl knit in one piece from the center-top outward. It is shaped by all the increasing being done on the edging. With both charts and written instructions, knitters are able to choose the most comfortable way to follow the pattern.
The pattern name comes from the proper term for a maple wing, which always sparks a favorite childhood memory - my Grandfather & I, splitting those wings and sticking them to the end of our noses. Can you see them in the stitch motif?
26 sts/36 rows = 4 inches in stockinette on US size 5 needles
Exact gauge is not important but do note that a looser gauge will result in the use of more yardage
575 yards of Fingering weight

I first picked up a pair of needles in 2007 and became smitten immediately. It was as if this new, creative world just opened for me. Aided by my cat Ralph, who loves to lay on my blocking FOs, I started LeftSideKnits, as an outlet for my love of knitting. I began experimenting with designing in 2010 and it has quickly become my true love.
You can find me on Ravelry as LeftSideKnits.
