Approximately 825 yards of fingering weight wool yarn
3 skeins of Brooklyn Tweed Loft (100% American Targhee-Columbia Wool; 275 yards/50g)
Note: Our sample used almost all of the third skein – we recommend purchasing a fourth to make sure you have enough yarn to finish.
Sample shown in Meteorite

Finished Gauge: 22 stitches & 32 rows = 4” measured over half- twisted rib pattern, with relaxed fabric after lace-blocking
Blocked-To Gauge: Shawl radius was stretched to 23” during blocking, creating a “blocked-to” gauge of 16 stitches & 25 rows = 4” in twisted rib pattern, measured over Knitted-On Border

One 32” circular needle in size needed to obtain gauge
Suggested Size: US 4 (3½ mm)

21½“ radius, measured from center point (neck) to outer border from relaxed fabric after blocking

Worked seamlessly in two parts and once finished; resembles a Faroese Crescent. Shawl Body is worked first, utilizing a center- out construction. Upon completion of the first section, a Knitted-On Border is worked and consumes live stitches from Shawl Body, negating the need for a traditional bind-off.
