The Slink is a shallow triangle shawl with self-fringe. It uses varying decrease and increase rates and short rows for subtle shaping.
We recommend it for intermediate knitters.
It works best with yarns that have drape, such as silk, linen, cotton, hemp, rayon, or bamboo. Yarns with animal hair fibers will be more difficult to unravel for fringe - be warned.
We have written a simple knit/purl pattern into this scarf, but you should be able to substitute your own stitch pattern with very little difficulty.
The bigger your needle size, the more yardage you will use. For DK weight yarn, something between 5 & 7 works well (but use whatever you want!)
Ravelry user chumstick has some great notes on her project that you might find useful.
6/29/10 - Added “sm” to abbreviations list (slip marker)
7/7/10 - Eliminated the increase on row 138 of the first half. Increases should be on Rows 136 & 142.
7/18/10 - Stitch count was off by 1 in the decrease section between rows 67 & 85 (correct on 67 and 85, but off in between)
