Thanks for checking out the Parallelism shawl! I hope you like what you see.

This scarf / shawl hybrid pattern is a simple stockinette knit using slipped stitches to create a subtle mosaic pattern, and crossed stitches to add stripes that run the length of the garment. The pattern calls for two skeins of contrasting yarn, and it’s a great opportunity to show off some of those beautiful colors you’ve probably been saving (particularly a nice gradient). The pattern is quite easy to learn and memorize, so this is a great pattern to knit when watching tv or multi-tasking. Whether you are knitting it for yourself, a friend, or a family member, the future recipient is bound to love it.

The pattern is highly adjustable. You can use weight of yarn if you adjust the needle size to meet your desired gauge, but it looks particularly great in fingering or heavy-lace weight. The size of the shawl / scarf can be adjusted based on the number of knitted repeats and the length of the yarn you are using.

The original sample shown was knit using two skeins of yarn, one gradient and one contrasting solid. The dimensions after loosely blocking were 100” long and 24” wide at its deepest point.
