Honey Hugs

Knitting
February 2012
Yummy Yarn Studio 100% Merino
Aran / 10 ply (8 wpi) ?
10 stitches and 8 rows = 2 inches in Stocking Stitch
US 9 - 5.5 mm
500 - 550 yards (457 - 503 m)
21” (53.3cm) from mid-point x 60” (152.3cm) wide.

Inspired by the warm rich honey tones of this yarn, I envisioned sunny fields of wheat, waving in the wind.

This is a bottom up shawl design that uses short rows to give a slight curvature that will hug your shoulders to keep you toasty warm.

The first section of the lace pattern is super quick and very easy to memorize. As you progress to the second section, you will start forming a slight arrow looking design. The last four rows of section two increases to 250 stitches and then decreases to 216 stitches.

This design is knitted back and forth on the circular needle, includes a lace pattern and short rows to provide a very gentle curve. The curvature of the design drapes nicely on ones shoulders and will stay in place. A chart for the lace pattern is included and note that all stitches on the wrong side are purled.
