Shard is an asymmetrical small shawl or scarf that takes 1 skein as written, but can be expanded to use 2 skeins for taller/larger people, just by working extra wedges in the pattern. The name refers to the missing Dark Crystal shard, and is designed and written specifically for the Dark Crystal colorway in Solemate from Lorna’s Laces for Jimmy Beans Wool. No two scarves will look exactly alike because of different gauge and knitting styles, and because of the choices each knitter will make.

Note for those wishing to substitute yarns: The specified yarn is space dyed (dip dyed), with a hot pink section of approximately 13 inches, and a full repeat of colors (hot pink, mauve, purple, teal, blue) measuring approximately 64 inches. To get similar results to the sample, the chosen substitute yarn must have between 12 and 14 inches of whichever color (instead of hot pink) will be made into “shards,” the stockinette stitch short row sections of hot pink seen on the sample.
