Tasha Shawl by Amy Christoffers

Tasha Shawl

July 2014
Sport (12 wpi) ?
15 stitches and 30 rows = 4 inches
US 6 - 4.0 mm
800 yards (732 m)
About 59" (150 cm) wingspan, 29½" (75 cm) down center back.

This shawl is meant to be a utilitarian, everyday sort of lace that works its charm in brightening up gray days. The Sincere Sheep Equity Sport
is a naturally dyed 100% Rambouillet wool from Wyoming. The handspun texture of the yarn reminds me of the nostalgic illustrations
of Tasha Tudor, whose books were a childhood favorite. When blocking the shawl, resist the temptation to block too much; part of the charm of this shawl is the bubbly texture of its stitch pattern, which you won’t want to damp down.
