Materials: 3 different colors sock yarn: 600 yds. MC (copper), 400 yds. CC1 (grey blue), 300 yds. CC2 (cream)

Sample knit with Madelinetosh Tosh Sock: Golden Hickory, Stovepipe, & Milk

The shawl is knit in a crescent, from the bottom edge up, using lace in a cogwheel pattern at the bottom edge to represent the wheel which raises & lowers the gate, slip stitches in gray & amber to evoke the walls of the keep and short rows for the remainder of the shawl.

The shawl is then finished with a petite 2 color edging at the top and the entire pattern has a bit of a steampunk vibe going on. It is wide, capacious, and perfect for throwing on next time you go into battle - lol…

Be aware - the slip stitch portion of the pattern is charted only; there were too many repeats within repeats to lend themselves easily to written directions. Other sections have both charted & written directions.
