SARD is a fingering weight shawl with quite some character. It is constructed top-down, very similar to a classic triangle. It is shaped to elongate the tips, and is so much easier to wrap around the neck.
The body is made of simple stockinette and mesh rows in a soothing rhythm. The shawl is finished with a lacy decorative knitted-on border and is the focal point of the shawl.
Sard comes to you in two sizes - Small and Large. Small is a one-skein project.

………………………………………………………..
Sard (pronounced /Surdh/)is a Hindi word which simply means chill or cold. The light-weight fabric and heart shaping makes SARD a suitable wear for chilly evenings of late summer or early fall.

I had the pleasure to collaborate with Mindy Kingery of Henlia Handmade for this project and absolutely loved working with her 100% Cormo base Lakeside Collection. The pattern would of course work with any yarn - solid, variegated and even gradients. But I especially love how the colors of Lakeside Collection yarn came out looking like delicate paint brush strokes on the body of the shawl while making a little striping scheme on the knitted-on border.
