Germinate aka TTL Mystery Shawl 2013
MORE ABOUT THE PATTERN
Germinate is worked in three-colors from the top down. It has a shape similar to a half-pi, but is actually a half-octagon. This shape is created with 4 wedge shaped sections.
This is a three color shawl.
Solid or semi solid colors are best. This shawl has patterning that will be lost with heavily variegated yarns.
I used a sport weight yarn for my sample, but a fingering weight yarn will also work. Be sure to allow extra yarn for differences in yarn put up and gauge.
This shawl is worked from the top edge down and out. It starts with a garter tab cast on, which is described in the pattern. There are also many excellent on-line tutorials and You Tube videos for this technique.
Working flat, yarn over increases, decreases, picking up sts, binding off, blocking.
Both charts and written instructions are included.

I recommend that you allow extra yarn to account for slight differences in gauge and yarn put up.- NOTE: For Color C I used almost the entire skein. I recommend having extra yarn on hand just in case.
