Knit Your Comics pattern from July 2016

This is a transformative work of knitted fanart.

This project is a long time coming. I actually bought the yarn for this project over a year ago, because, if you’ll remember, one of the very first Knit Your Comics came out in July 2015 and was Captain America themed. The doily I created was my first attempt at the shield, but my real goal was a circle shawl, a daunting project for someone who had never knitted a circular shawl before or done a project that large.

But Captain America means a lot to me—now, more than ever—and I knew that it would take some time, but I would be able to extrapolate based on the successful doily and make my shield.
