Sometime a shawl is all you need on a windy day….
Windswept combines all the elements needed for a perfect knitting experience. A little garter, some simple lace and a bit of cables. Worked sideways from end to end, on the bias, the gradual increases on one side only, work to produce its asymmetrical shape. The shawl can be worn in many ways, wide side on back, wide side on front or, simply as a scarf.

Approximately 84” (213 cm) along longest side and 18” deep (46 cm) at widest point, after blocking.
Yarn used:
2 skeins of Cape May Fibers Sock (75% Superwash Merino, 25% Nylon) – 100g/450 yds per skein: MC - Naturally Dyed Cranberry, (approx 400 yards), CC - Jetty, (approx 200 yards).
~Yarn usage and measurements will vary depending on the gauge and weight of the yarn~.
