I’m the youngest of 3 girls. My eldest sister Wendy was a nature lover and always admired beautiful sunsets. After she suddenly passed away on her 34th birthday, her 6-year old daughter would see a beautiful, colorful sky and say, “Look! It’s a Wendy Sky!” This pattern is close to my heart, and my intent is to share with the world the term “Wendy Sky,” to remember that she is still with us, and smiling down upon us each time we see a Wendy Sky. I love and miss her every day, but see her in the beautiful nature that surrounds me.

This knit is a large, symmetrical, triangle-shaped shawl which begins with 3 stitches and increases in size, using sections of stockinette with a flower motif, and garter sections with stripes. The pattern is easily adjustable to make it smaller or larger, and although it is written for fingering weight yarn, different yarn weights/needle sizes can be used to customize the size. It is a two color shawl, but additional colors, or one color can be used.

Wendy taught hearing impaired and deaf children at the Philadelphia School for the Deaf. To honor her, 20% of all pattern sales will be donated to the San Diego School District’s Program for hearing impaired and deaf children. Thank you for your interest in my pattern!
