On 2/2/2021, I added a bonus version of this pattern. You can now make this shawl in fingering weight or bulky weight yarn. When you purchase the pattern, you’ll receive two copies, a fingering weight and a bulky weight version.

I’m leaving the information above to reflect the fingering weight version as it’s too challenging to make the information above work for both versions. You can see the fingering weight version in the two color shawl and the bulky weight is in the grey, single version shawl. See below for more info in the bulky weight version.

Fingering weight version
If you want to use a different yarn, here are the general requirements:

A total of 200 g fingering weight yarn (~800 yards) is needed. I used 150 g (~600 yds) of color A for the body and 50 g (~200 yds) of color B for the border.

For the main color I choose a solid color and for the border I used a hand-dyed contrasting (yet complimentary) color.

Needles: I used a US size 5 (3.75 mm) to achieve gauge and a 40” (102 cm) circular needle to accommodate all the stitches.

Bulky weight version
Yarn: 520 yds 476 m bulky weight yarn.
Sample shown in MadelineTosh TML Triple Twist (100% Superwash Merino; 130 yds 119 m per 100 g) Great Owl Grey, 4 skeins.

Needles: US 9 5.5 mm 40 in 100 cm circular needle
or size needed to get gauge.

Gauge: 15 sts = 4 in 10 cm using pattern stitch, pre-blocking

Finished measurements: 70 in 178 cm tip to tip (wingspan) and 22 in 56 cm tall (from top edge to bottom tip)
What is Project Peace?

Since 2016, we’ve been knitting together from 12/1-21… knitters from around the world, in the name of peace. Raise your knitting needles in the name of peace… Throughout the ages, the need to cultivate peace in our world has never waned. During challenging times, it’s even more important to promote peace.

The theme for Project Peace 2020 is “peace in place” inspired by the need to connect with place during the pandemic and find peace in the now. Identifying with place provides the opportunity to create peace with self, others and the Earth… This year’s blog posts will focus on possible ways to cultivate peace in place.

Project Peace is an annual knit-along/peace-along. A pattern designed for Project Peace 2020 will be available for the knit-along. Blog posts related to cultivating peace in our lives will be published daily.

This year’s pattern is an elongated triangular shawl with a textured stitch pattern and a ripple border. It’s all about creating a cozy wrap to create comfort for the coming months. I developed the design to be accessible to most knitters.
This pattern has been tested and professional tech-edited.
