This is the first pattern for year 5 of my 7 Small Shawls eBook series. Includes stand-alone bulky pattern.

This lovely shawl begins with a lace diamond and expands outwards to form a triangle. Short rows at the end add an asymmetrical border. Perfect for different weights of yarn! The shawl may be enlarged easily.

The pattern is written for 4 weights of Anzula’s new 50% silk/50% merino yarn. The two different fingering weights are slightly different in yardage and very different in make-up. Silken is a 2-ply yarn that has a looser spin than Luster, a 3-ply yarn. When choosing to substitute yarns, be sure to purchase extra yardage, as the different spin and fiber content of the yarn may affect the amount of yardage used.

This pattern includes full written and charted instructions.

About the series:

Note that the eBook includes a code to purchase a bundle of knitCompanion set-ups (in the knitCompanion store) for those who like to use knitCompanion, but do not wish to set up their own charts. The code is at the bottom of the table of contents page in the eBook. Each single pattern also includes its own code if separate purchase is desired. The code for Purless is on the last page of the pattern.

Welcome to year five of my subscription series! The idea for my first eBook subscription (Year One: The Pleiades) was born in 2010 while reading posts on Ravelry: people knitting 10 shawls in 2010. I decided to design and knit 10 shawls that year, and at the time I released my first subscription, I had 7 left to do. I reached my goal that year, and the next year I was back for more challenge. After that, I realized that I simply love doing these subscriptions. I won’t even pretend that there’s any other reason to do them! 7 is one of my favorite numbers, and so I am still doing 7 small (and not so small) shawls with 3 (my other favorite number!) accessories thrown in.

Lately, I’ve become more than a little obsessed with asymmetry. Asymmetry in color, shape, and stitch pattern…the more I have sketched and dreamed, the more possibilities have come to me. I ended up with a sheaf of designs, and I’m so excited to share them with you!!!

The patterns for this eBook will be delivered to subscribers within a subscription period ending in August, 2016. There is no specific delivery time for each pattern. All patterns will have charts and written instructions, and you will be able to make them out of one skein of sock yarn or an amount of sock yarn comparable to that needed for a pair of socks. Some will be two colors, and maybe even three! But you won’t need more than one skein of any color. There will be a few little extras sprinkled throughout and all patterns will be available to purchase separately!

Are you ready? Happy knitting!
