PATTERN DETAILS

This shawl is designed to evoke the feeling of the beloved Wasatch and Rocky Mountain Ranges. This shawl echoes my deep and abiding love for the mountains that surround my high desert home. From the many foothills to the craggy peaks all throughout the year. From rocky ridges to sleeping snow-capped titans. The body of this shawl is worked from the neck down, using yarn overs on each end of each right side row to shape the "wings" and paired yarn overs in the center of each right side row (separated by a center stitch) to shape the point down the spine. These 4 increased stitches are added every right side row, making each row successively longer than the last. After the main body charts are done, you will cast on stitches and work a knitted-on border (tutorial here http://www.miriamfelton.com/tutorial-knitted-on-border/) with a short row point on to turn the bottom corner.

I started sewing when I was a toddler on one of those drilled out boards where you use a shoelace and sew the outline of a fish or a duck. Once I could wield scissors I started sewing dresses for my dolls. I added crochet when I was 8, cross stitching when I was 10, beading at 11, and knitting at 16. And I started binding books in college.
