Sunlight filters through glistening needles, the hardy evergreen a constant through the seasons. In the Pines is a shawl worked from one end of the wingspan to the other. Slip stitches move across the front side of the fabric to form a V and on the backside a beautiful landscape of ridges.

Yarn: Jill Draper Makes Stuff Beacon 50% Unregistered Cormo Wool / 45 % Alpaca / 5% Angora ~250 yards / 229 meters ~ 2 ounces / 57 grams - 2 skeins or 500 yards fingering/sport weight

Needle: US Size 6 (4 mm) 16” or 24” circulars, piece is worked flat, circulars are used to accommodate large number of stitches
Tapestry Needle (for weaving in ends)
Kitchen or yarn scale to weigh yarn and maximize yardage(optional)

21 stitches x 33 rows = 4 in / 10 cm in stockinette stitch
Gauge is not critical, however still make a swatch to ensure you like the density and drape of the fabric.

56 in / 142.25 cm across top edge, 21 in / 53.25 cm deep

Notes: You may easily substitute yarn and needle sizes for this pattern, however this will change the amount of yardage needed and size of finished shawl. If you are working with a single skein or more than 2 skeins I would suggest using a kitchen scale to weigh your yarn prior to starting the project. Halving that number will give you the halfway weight to shoot for. When you are working on the body of the kerchief and feel close to the middle keep in mind to check the weight of your yarn prior to a Row 11, as you will be omitting the Row 11 increase on the final increase repeat.
