SPREAD the LOVE I’m feeling the winter doldrums and want to spread a little cheer and love. 50% off all my patterns!!

Synchrony is a crescent shaped shawl knit in one piece from the center-top outward. It is shaped by all the increasing done on the edging. With both charts and written instructions, knitters are able to choose the most comfortable way to follow the pattern.

Pattern is sized for a small and a large shawl. Modifications have been written for more or less yardage though. The sections are easy to mix and match for different yardages.

Small: Approx. 525 yards of fingering weight yarn

Large: Approx. 700 yards of fingering weight yarn

Testers used anywhere from 430 yards to 675 yards total, depending on gauge.

Large Sample: Twisted Fiber Art Muse 50% silk/50% merino blend with 330 yards/70 grams shown in Paramour

Total used: 646 yards/137 grams used

Exact gauge is not important but do note that a looser gauge will result in the use of more yardage
