“Things are calling me away. My hair is being pulled by the stars again.” - Anais Nin

This is a pattern for a rectangular shawl/wrap. Designed for one skein of Katahdin by, Miss Babs. It is knit from one end to the other, no pesky provisionals or knitting the same motif twice! The design begins with simple lines, the pattern changing and becoming more complex as you knit to the end.

There are some bead accents, also, changing and increasing as you go. The edge has pattern on both sides, but the central section is purled on the ws. You will have a choice to end the shawl in 7 places (the first length being ~ 72” x 31 “ width, remaining constant throughout, 182 cm x 78cm). There is also a separate file: ‘Alternate Chart 9’. It matches Chart 11, if you want to skip chart 10 (thank you JoanneAlderman!). For more details join us in the bunnymuff group!

There are, pictured, the full shawl and a few variations, please, see the knitter’s project page to see what they did!
