New Pattern: Amaranth Shawl

The sister pattern to the Amaranth Headband, the shawl features two colors knit side by side using a simple intarsia technique.  The challenge was to create a curved shawl knit sideways so it could incorporate the lovely lace motif I had encountered when I made the Amaranth Headband. The shawl uses 1 full skein for the main color, and less than half of the lace color. This shawl is knit sideways from one point increasing toward the widest part at center, and then decreasing again toward the opposite point.
Width at center 12”/ 30.5 cm
Wingspan is ~66 - 68” / 168 - 173 cm
(If using recommended yarn and following sample)


Skills
• lace knitting
• binding 2 colors vertically (intarsia)
• increasing and decreasing
• cable cast on

Tools
1 pair of size US 4/ 3.5mm knitting
needles or size to obtain gauge
4 stitch markers
1 removable stitch marker
Tapestry/Darning needle
scrap yarn for lifeline(s)
