Let your spirit fly free, like your fingers, as they gleefully soar through this pattern.

Freedom is a dainty shawl worked top-down in a crescent shape. The body is worked in simple garter stitch for a meditative experience (and easy to take on the go!), with an intricate lace/cable border, and a picot bind off decoration for a nice flourish.

Yarns Used: Frabjous Fibers Cheshire Cat (Fingering; 100% Merino; 512 yards / 110 grams). 1 skein in Hookah Smoke.
Needle: US6 (4mm) circular needle. A long circular needle is recommended in order to accommodate the large number of stitches as the shawl grows.
Yardage: 512 yards (471m).
Gauge: 22 sts and 40 rows = 4” (10cm) in Garter Stitch (after blocking). Gauge is not crucial to this project, but varying gauges can affect yardage and final measurements.
Other Notions: Stitch markers, darning needle.
Final Measurements: A: 70” (178cm), B: 13” (33cm).
