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.

The pattern includes complete written instructions (p.1-8) and complete charts for PRINTING and DIGITAL users (p.9-15). You can print both if you like to mix it up, or just print your preferred method - everything you need to complete the shawl is contained in each section.

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
Skills to know or learn for this project: knitting in the round (starting with a fews sts on DPNs and then moving to circulars), cables, lace, variable st counts for the leaves
