How to knit this:

  1. Choose 7 crazy yarns (mix bulky, eye lash, boucle, self striping, worsted, hairy, fairy and everything else you’ve got), very different to each other (between bulky to worsted, approx. 60y/55m each)).
  2. Start immediately to knit with ALL the yarns at the same time.
  3. Get tangled for 14 rows (only 14 sts so it goes fast).
  4. Look at what you made - you may want to redo the order of the yarns.
  5. The rest is just knitting along, following the chart /written instructions. (knitted sideways)

needles: US15/10mm
gauge: approx. 8stsx12rows , depending on the yarn.
size: majority of bulky yarns and right gauge makes a Large size.
majority of worsted (with US#15) makes a med.
Adjust the height by adding sts, and the length by adding rows.

Knit time is about 10 hours once you get it.

Variations:

  • Pattern is written for carrying all the yarns along through the whole shawl. Yarns that are not in use are carried as a big st on the right.
  • You can also knit it as full intarsia: skip the big st, cut yarns when starting a one color band, and reintroduce them later.

This pattern is a part of a series. The others are:
Rainbow Poem, Mild: (med-L, knitted sideways with 5 yarns and softer edges)
Rainbow Poem, Landscape: XL, knitted upward with 7 yarns, adding one yarn at a time.
