In keeping with my design philosophy, This shawl uses simple stitches in unusual ways to create a one-of-a-kind accessory, easy to knit and fun to wear.

March is Nation Women’s History Month. While this celebrates the contributions women have made to history, in the interest of inclusion I would like to point out that these contributions involved men as well. This design is created with unity in mind, so gentlemen knitters please consider yourselves included in this endeavor!

Each stitch pattern is meant to represent the struggles faced and changes made by 5 extraordinary women. Each stitch pattern includes a brief description of their accomplishemnts along with a link to a longer biography. Click on their name to read more.

Yarn:
I used Done Roving Frolicking Feet Mini Gradiets. 100% superwash Merino consisting of 6 mini skeins approx 100 yds (91 m) each for a total of 600 yds (549 m) fingering weight. I am pleased to tell you that Done Roving has agreed to sponsor this MKAL and provide a 20% discount on their yarn to participants. You will receive your coupon code when you sign up. All codes will expire on February 28 when the first clue is dropped so don’t wait too long!

Contrasting or coordinating shades would both work nicely on this project. Also, it is not necessary to have 6 different colors as long as you have a total of at least 600 yds (549 m).

Additional Materials:
US4 (3.5 mm) needles or desired size to give you a fabric you like.
Cable needle (required)
DPN one size smaller than working needle (optional)
Stitch markers (optional)

Many thanks to the Nation Women’s History Month Alliance for inspiring this design and allowing me to use their logo!
