Inspired by the variety of color and texture in rust-dyed fabric, Rusted Wing is an asymmetrical shawl knit in alternating sections of stockinette and garter stitch. A growing expanse of simple eyelet runs along the outside of the “wing.”

Select yarn with color and fiber differences in order to create visual as well as textural interest. The knitting grows in sections of horizontal stripes, but the shawl’s dramatic asymmetry emerges when it is worn with the garter border along the left side of the body.

The pattern contains line-by-line instructions with percentage complete information in an easy-to-follow table, allowing you to keep track of your knitting. There are also concise directions included.

Rusted Wing will be available at a discounted rate during the month of September. On October 1, there will be an Instagram contest -- the winner will receive Quince & Co. yarn in Tern (barnacle) and Finch (nasturtium) to knit the shawl as pictured here.
