This graphic design is knit with 4 main colors of fingering weight wool and one color of lace weight mohair silk for the decorative eyelet rows. Chevrons and short rows form the geometric fabric while the shape grows gradually into a wider asymmetrical shape. You will receive instructions for a long scarf shape or a wider shawl shape. Choose a contrasting graphic palette of colors or try a more subtle and faded color palette.

Yarn: MC - Fingering weight wool

You can use fingering weight wool for the entire project, but I recommend using lace weight mohair/silk for the CC to add extra drape and texture to your project.

Errata - Scarf only:
These errata notes were updated and sent January 17, 2019. If you purchased this pattern after January 17, 2019, you have the correct updated PDF.

Section 2, Pattern Repeat 2 - Row 16 (WS):
It should read “K2, ssk, k to m…”
Close to the end of Section 2, where it says “Repeat SECTION 1 Rows 59-70 once more. 154 sts. 33 total MC wedges. 106 sts.”, Please ignore the 106 sts bit.

Row 23 (RS): Using CC, k2, ssk, k to 1 st before m, sl1, pick up a stitch from 2 ridges below and knit it together with the slipped stitch, yo, slm, yo, k to 2 sts before m, k2tog, slm, ssk, k to 1 st before m, sl1, pick up a stitch from 2 ridges below and knit it together with the slipped stitch, yo, slm, yo, k to last 3 sts, sl3 wyif.

After 24 wedges are achieved on Quake Scarf, I changed “Repeat Rows 59-70 once more” to “Repeat Rows 47-58 once more”.

This correction is reflected in the new PDF “quake_scarf_en_3.pdf” sent as an update February 28, 2019.

12-09-22: I combined the Scarf and Shawl instructions for Quake into one new PDF along with some additional video tutorial links. You can download the new PDF called quake_scarf_&_shawl_6.pdf.
