Pay What Works: In an effort to find a balance between more financial accessibility and sustainable pricing, I now offer a “Pay What Works” model. This allows for financial flexibility while still valuing and respecting the work and energy I and others provide in the making of this pattern. The price shown on Ravelry is the “true” value of the pattern that best reflects the work put into creating this design.

The Arius Shawl is the sister pattern to the Caprius Shawl. This shawl is knit bottom-up, using double decreases and single increases to shape the shawl into its asymmetrical shape, that slants to the left. While the cast-on and first couple of sections require a large amount of stitches, the knitting goes faster and faster the more you knit. The shawl features an eyelet section paired up with a pop of color in the form of miniature bobbles on a stockinette background. Use a neutral color for the background and a bright, bubbly, vivid, fun color for the bobble strands! Get creative!

Yarns Used:

  • Background color: 3 skeins of Woolfolk TYND “6”
  • Contrast Color: 1 skein of Shibui Staccato “Raspberry”

Total Yardage Used: 600 yards of background color, 70 yards of contrast color.
Needle: Size 5 (3.75mm)
Gauge: 24 sts per 4” in St. st.

Special Techniques/Stitches: YO, kfb, M1 increases, basic decreases (k2tog, ssk, sssk, k3tog tbl).
