Setting Out Shawl

November 2018
Fingering (14 wpi) ?
19.5 stitches and 31 rows = 4 inches
in stocking stitch
US 6 - 4.0 mm
656 - 766 yards (600 - 700 m)

Beautiful portal frame arches hold up a translucent roof of the concourse, creating an airy, light-filled space. The Setting Out Shawl takes this roof as its inspiration. The arches receding into the distance are marked out in the stripes.

This is definitely a beginner’s shawl – only the garter stitch tab might prove tricky and a diagram is provided to show how this is done. After the challenge of the tab is surmounted, it’s easy travelling, with simple increases and lots of stocking stitch. A simple garter border finishes off the shawl.
