When I was designing this pattern, my main goal was to make a large shawl that at the same time doesn't require working on a large number of stitches. I just never have enough patience to even cast-on some... 34769876 stitches, let alone knit it. I can't do it!
Now that my designer's mission has been accomplished, here is what I have: the large shawl (170cm wingspan, drops 70 cm) that can be knit without much physical effort. I hope your hands will appreciate it as much as mine did ;)).
This shawl consists of two parts: the main part and the border. The main part is worked in segments (you will need 25), and then the border in joined seamlessly to it with a simple trick. There's no need to break or join yarn. And just one color is used in any row.
Techniquie-wise, it is mostly short rows and mosaic knitting. Not too difficult, but not for the novice knitter.
- 800m of MC (shown lt green), and 600m of CC (dark green). Use highly contrasting colors; either solids, or a gradient (like Zaubebrall crazy 400m/100g) for MC, and solid for CC. I don’t recommend using yarn with faster color changes.
- 4.0 or 4.5mm circular needles. The circles are a little bumpy right off the needles, and need to be blocked to lay completely flat and round. Stiff fabric won’t block as needed, that’s why it’s important to knit loose.
- 170cm wingspan, drops 70 cm; blocked. The circles are 5.5cm across after blocking.
ERRATA - corrected in new pdf. The line above the table on page 2 should read: CO with MC and knit 1 garter ridge (with MC, not with CC, as was in the old pdf).
