A moving riot of chevrons sweeps diagonally, creating texture across this garter based long crescent shawl, while contrasting color stripes expand and contract.

Techniques & Skills Used: garter tab CO, knit, increasing/decreasing.

Size: 98” length and 18” depth.

Yarn: The Periwinkle Sheep PURPOSE (90% superwash merino wool, 10% nylon; 410 yards/375m/100g), 1 skein each colors A, B and C, shown in Ghost of Molly, Beltway and Gold Rush, respectively. The sample used approximately 380 yards A, 400 yards B and 210 yards C. See Designer’s Notes for suggestions on adjusting for different yardage.

Other Materials: US 6 (4mm) 32” circular needle, or size to match gauge; Scrap yarn for provisional CO; Stitch markers (4); Yarn needle.

Gauge: 20 st and 40 rows/4” in garter stitch, after blocking. Gauge is not critical for this project, however a different gauge may result in a smaller or larger finished shawl, and different yardage requirements.
