Stazi and Anya’s Tale:

Stazi slowly strolled along the beach, drinking in the quiet at the end of the day. Her mind was wandering to what she was going to give to her little sister as a congratulatory present. In just a few weeks Anya would be heading off to the same witchcraft academy where Stazi had been attending classes….

The Design:

This parallelogram wrap is knit on the bias for a dreamy drape. The picot cast on and bind off add a touch of flair to the edges of this shawl with its simple lace pattern, smooshy garter stitch stripes, and wispy swirls in the soft blue sky.

Yarn Used in Sample:
C1: Knit Picks Hawthorne Fingering Multi, 357 y/3.53 oz (326 m/100 g); 80% wool, 20% nylon/polyamide;
C2: Knit Picks Hawthorne Fingering Kettle Dye, 357 y/3.53 oz (326 m/100 g); 80% wool, 20% nylon/polyamide.
~While the pattern was originally knit with fingering weight yarn, one of the testers used sport weight, and it turned out beautifully. Just keep in mind that your finished wrap will be larger, and will require more yarn.

Yardage Used:
C1: Lovejoy 390y/3.85oz (357m/109g) (two skeins);
C2: Wisp 456y/4.52oz (417m/128g) (two skeins).
~There are instructions for a slightly smaller stole so that you only need one skein of C1.

Needles: A 24”+ circular needle is recommended, and a crochet hook for the cast on and bind off.

Other Notions: Optional stitch markers, tapestry needle for weaving in ends.

Skill Level: Advanced beginner: Simple stitch patterns, color work, and shaping; picot cast on/bind off.

Stitches Used: k, k2tog, k3tog, p, sl1 wyif, yo


This pattern has been professionally tech edited by the amazing Lisa Beth Houchins of Meanest Mommy Knits. It is fully written and charted, and includes a photo tutorial for a picot cast on and bind off using a crochet hook (much faster than knitting picots!)
