Love mini-skeins? Love fade-effect patterns?

Hover has been designed especially to make the most of mini-skien sets and features a beautiful slipped stitch and yarn over section at the transition point between colours. The pattern contains instructions for different sized mini-skein sets (5 x 20g and 8 x 13g), and “Gone Wild” instructions for other sized sets (including left-overs), making it a versatile pattern for all seasons.

Named after the shawl’s shape, which resembles a hovering bird, Hover is knitted from side-to-side, increasing towards the mid-point and then decreasing back down. The desire to reach the next mini-skein and a decreasing stitch count in the second half, make Hover a motivating and fun shawl to knit.

The pattern includes full written instructions, links to helpful video tutorials to explain how to make the optional tassels, photographs, a schematic and has been fully tech-edited and test knitted.

What the test knitters said:
“I LOVED this pattern.”
“I don’t have to guess what I’m supposed to do next and everything I need to know is very well explained.”
“It’s a great summer knitting project and, in the right yarn, lovely to wear in the summertime too.”
