Yewll is a top down crescent that was inspired by the Doctor Yewll character in Defiance. Her uniform has some interesting stitching which caught my eye and inspired the main body pattern. The edging was inspired by the plants she raises for medicinal use in the clinic. She is a strong character so I used bold, strong colors for the prototype. It is a good pattern for gradients, solids, and softly variegated yarns. Strong variegates can become a bid muddled in the lace section, but would probably look good with a solid edge.

The shawl features a scrunchable body with a lace edging. The instructions are written and charted and have been tested. The size can be adjusted by working additional sections in the main body and matching up the multiples of the edging.

It’s a fun knit with an interesting dropped stitch look without dropping stitches. The resulting shape is very versatile. It’s one of my favorites!
