This triangular shawl is worked from the top down. Flywheel begins with a garter-stitch tab and progresses through all stitch patterns with regular increases at the spine and both edges. The shawl is designed to be made with two skeins of fingering-weight yarn in complementary colorways (choose semi-solid or tonal colorways for best results). Clues alternate between the two colorways, resulting in broad stripes. Each clue features a different stitch pattern, with transitions between clues
The sample for this shawl used 340 yards of Color 1, and 430 yards of Color 2. My test knitters had a considerable range of yardage used, from 300 to 450 for Color 1, and from 400 to 450 for Color 2. Therefore I am recommending a US#4 needle (instead of the #5 that I used, and my testers used). However, if you are a TIGHT knitter you may wish to use a #5 after all.
