Staying true to yourself can be both comforting and challenging, just like the combination of knitting garter stitch and lace. This shawl is cozy, yet lightweight, and features arrowhead lace and garter ridges.  Knit with an alpaca/silk blend yarn for warmth, strength, and shine, just like the characteristics you are made of. Knit your shawl with love, wear it with pride, and let it inspire you to follow your arrow wherever it points.

Pattern Notes: Designed to make the most of that one special skein of fingering weight yarn you love. If you happen to have more than 400 yards/365 meters and would like to knit a larger shawl, there are sections in the shawl pattern instructions that can be easily increased.

Size: The Follow Your Arrow shawl is worked down and out from the center of the top edge. The finished measurements of the shawl are 48”/121 cm wingspan along top edge and 33”/83 cm long.

Materials: The pattern calls for two skeins of Sierra Rose Alpacas Fingering Weight yarn, colorway Orion’s Silver Knight (90% alpaca, 10% silk; 200 yards/182 meters per 56 gram/2 oz skein) used for sample. Or approximately 400 yards/365 meters of a fingering weight alpaca/silk blend yarn and US size 6 (4.00 mm) 16” / 40cm circular needles and DPNs, or size needed to obtain gauge.

Skills: knit and purl, working increases and decreases, reading charts.
