Named for an Emily Dickinson poem (local heroine for me!), this sweet boomerang-shaped shawl uses only 3 skeins of sock yarn and begins with a tiny 1 st cast on. Stitches are added to the right edge rapidly while decreases are made to the left edge—this creates the fun, asymmetrical shape that makes the zigzag slip-stitch pattern even more impressive. The colorwork stitch pattern is super easy, and you only ever work with one strand of yarn at a time (it only looks like you stranded!). The pattern is written out line for line (including the zigzag slip-stitch pattern), or you can follow charts for those who prefer them.
Included in your kit is the following:
(1) 2 skeins Nightshade Fingering in colourway of your choice and 1 skein undyed Superfine Fingering
(2) PDF pattern of Hope & Feathers Shawl sent by email for your Ravelry library
One size measures 47” along the cast off edge, 60" along the curve from the cast on to the bind off edge, and 20" from the bottom "point" to the curved edge
US 5 40" circular needles or size to obtain gauge
