Leaf on the Wind
  0 customer reviews

Leaf on the Wind is a beautiful cable knit shawlette with flowers and leaves and cabled braids/knots. It has a unique seamless construction that is initially knit in the round to make the center medallion, then partially bound off and worked flat, before the edging is knit on sideways.

For the shawlette in lace weight you will need less than 800 yds (under 100g) and for the shawlette in fingering between 950-1000 yds (under 205-300g)
For a full sized fingering weight shawl, increase needle size to US7/4.5mm and expect to use between 1000-1100 yds. The finished size will be around 68"/173cm across and 36"/91cm.
Yarn choice: The construction of this shawl may not be suitable to highly variegated or gradient yarns. The center medallion is circular, then the body is knitted flat, and the edging is knitted on sideways - this will cause three different pooling patterns for your yarn.
For lace weight use US 5 (3.75mm) needles
