I love the symbolism of an arrow, especially when used to signify a direction of travel or force. When I’m making plans or setting goals, I envision embarking on my decided course of action and with any luck, flying straight towards my goal. I imagine myself to be a sharp arrow that, once launched, moves unwaveringly towards its target.

Sharp Arrow is a 3/4 circular shawl that starts off with garter stitch and ends with lace. Its slipped-stitch spines fly straight through the garter stitch section and into the lace, which features an arrow motif. The pattern includes charts and written instructions, so you can pick whichever method will get you to your goal of a finished shawl quicker.

Whether you like to set big goals to stretch yourself, or smaller ones to have the satisfaction of knocking them down and moving on to the next, knitting and wearing Sharp Arrow will serve as a tangible reminder that you can put yourself on a path and
fly towards whatever it is you want to achieve.
