Dichotomy is now available for individual sale. It is also available through your In-Store LYS sales at participating yarn shops.

Starting July 1, 2019, $2 of every purchase goes to the Beagle Freedom Project to help end animal testing.

Dichotomy was designed exclusively for Volume 1 of the DFW Designers collection and will be released to its eBook in March.

Dichotomy is a half circle shawl that gives tribute to the changing of the seasons.

With easy increases and German short rows to keep things interesting, you can choose from an i-cord or stretchy bind off at the end.

You will need at least two skeins of fingering weight yarn that comes in 420+ yd skeins.

If you are using yarn that is notoriously under-measured, or less than 400 yds a skein, you will need 2 skeins of your CC of choice or you should chose a complimentary third color for the last section.

Pattern includes pictures of all three options available and close ups of the interesting color changes between sections:

  • As written with two colors and i-cord BO using Yarn Carnival
  • Two colors Stockinette Section 6 option with the i-cord BO with Miss Babs
  • Three colors option with Jeny’s stretchy bind off in Sunshine Yarns

I am always available for questions. Please ask for help if you do not understand something. This has been thoroughly tech edited and test knit.

You do not need to print Pages 1 and 10. They are photo and pattern premise fluff. Save your ink. You care about the meat.

Read the entire pattern through before you start.
