Far away dreams…
Are you looking for a project that you can just start and knit mindlessly for a looooong time before having to think about it? I know I am!
I hope this will be something that you like.
This shawl is worked in 2 stages. The first section of the shawl is a simple rectangle in garter stitch worked flat. When you finish this section you must pick up sts all around it and work the lace border in the round.
It uses 2 colors. Try coming up with a fun combination to lift you up! I know I always feel better when I knit with colors that I love.
64“ 160 cm long and 24” 60 cm wide, after blocking.
2 skeins of Steppke Single by Frida Fuchs in colorway Schiefer (100% superwash merino; 400 yards 366 m/100g) and 1 skein of Cozy Merino by Walk Collection in colorway Salt and Pepper (100% superwash merino; 400 yards 366 m/100g) or approx. 1200 yards (1097 m) of fingering weight yarn in 2 colors: 800 yards (731m) in Color 1 and 400 yards (366m) in Color 2.
Needles: US 6 (4 mm) needles, 24” and 40” long (shorter ones for the body of the shawl, longer ones for the border).
Other notions: 4 st markers, tapestry needle, blocking pins or wires.
