Thaw makes the most of one-of-a-kind hand painted yarns by allowing their brilliant colors to take center stage. As stunning as these yarns are, they are often difficult to work with because the pooling of colors can obscure a stitch pattern. To avoid this problem, Thaw is worked primarily in a simple stockinette stitch.
It is knitted in one piece starting at the top edge of the short row section, which gives the shawlette its unique crescent shape. The ruffle is created with simple increases and the points along the edge are formed using a few easy lace stitches.
Thaw is small enough to tuck into a coat yet long enough to wear as a scarf. Its elongated crescent shape offers numerous ways of tying and draping without the need for a shawl pin. Designed specifically to let hand painted yarns shine, this versatile shawlette will make a colorful addition to any wardrobe.
26 May 2011: All increase stitches in Rows 13, 21 and 25 are ‘cdik’, not ‘cdiyo’; the pattern repeat symbol * in rows 13, 21, 25 & 27 should be before the ‘cdi’ stitches. The pdf is now correct.
