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.

My name is Deborah, and I design under the name ObliviousKnits. I've been making things my whole life, mostly self-taught. I taught myself to knit about 11 years ago. I got obsessed! I also crochet, bead, paint, draw, play with fiber and drop spindle, all while watching disgusting amounts of tv. My husband and I play guitar and write songs, but mostly I like playing with YARN.
