With Arms Outstretched is an asymmetrical triangle shawl that alternates between a geometric mosaic pattern and an easy to memorize lace pattern. There are some pretty awesome things about this shawl, no floats, no purling and it utilizes almost all your yarn, so no leftovers!
While gauge is not usually important with shawls, it is for this design. I intentionally designed it to use as much of each color as possible, so it is important to check your gauge!
A special thank you to MadelineTosh for providing yarn support for this design, and to Wendy Bernard for her amazing stitch dictionary where I found this great mosaic pattern.

I have implemented a Pay What Works model for all of my patterns. The full price reflects how much work goes into each of my patterns. All of my patterns are tech edited and test knit. I know not everyone can afford to pay full price, so I have created 3 coupon codes to help:

I hope that those of you who can afford to pay full price will, but if you can’t please use the code that works best for you. If you are interested in sponsoring patterns for other knitters, please send me a message!
