PATTERN DETAILS

Pattern includes line-by-line written instructions and full charts. Construction Fire-Drake is a multidirectional shawl. It begins as a bottom up design and then switches to a sideways shawl for the center. The entire design is worked in one piece. At the end there is a 6 stitch graft or seam depending on your preference. Due to the construction of this shawl, you'll need to make sure the cast on has a good deal of stretch. I recommend casting on and working the first purl row with a needle 2 sizes larger than your main working needle. Yardage The sample shown in the photos took nearly every last drop of yarn in the skein of Aria (100 grams, 438 yards). After completion there was only about 3 yards left. If you substitute yarn make sure your skein has at least the same yardage as Aria. Also, watch your gauge. Knitting looser than the stated gauge may result in running out of yarn even with the correct yardage.

I started crocheting as part of my homeschool program around age 9. Knitting got added much later on after I graduated college. I pretty much immediately started with knitwear design and launched FiddleKnits.com
