My latest foray into shawl design is assymetric, and I’m hooked!

I wanted an easygoing wear-everywhere project for summer and this shawl was just the thing. The pattern is rhythmic and soothing and perfect for knitting in the car, at the beach, or sipping a cocktail poolside.

Knit in A Verb For Keeping Warm’s gorgeous Annapurna, it’s warm and soft and lightweight - the exact thing you want to throw over your shoulders when the sun goes down. And I know I’ll still be wearing this with a light jacket after Summer has passed and we go into Fall.

You can easily alter the pattern for more or less stripes, add a different lace or play with size as your stash and taste dictates. You can knit this in one color, or two, or even a whole bunch of different ones (gradient?).

But if you want one JUST LIKE MINE, Kristine over at AVFKW is dyeing up some special skeins. She’s a total genius - using organic, sustainably raised fibers and extracts to create delicate and distinct yarn that you will just fall in love with!! I“m already thinking about a next one….. Go here for more information…

Errata: 2019 version, p.4 written instructions: The odd # rows “knit to last X sts” were off by one stitch. Sorry! This was revised and the most recent version on Ravelry does have the correct counts.
