This shawl is meant to inspire your playfulness.  Try experimenting with a different gauge and yarn weight to play with the size of the shawl, explore different color possibilities, hold a couple strands of yarn together, or even spin your own yarn. The stitch pattern lends itself beautifully to a relaxing knit, but its unique construction makes it fun to knit again and again.  (Please note that the size you choose to knit will alter the amount of yarn needed.)

The yarn used in the samples is a long gradient, but you can achieve this effect by using multiple colors of mini skeins, too.  For lots of color changing, select 2 colors for your kit.  For a smaller project, try the Traveler Cowl here.

 Worsted/Aran Weight

DESIGNER RECOMMENDED SPORT YARN: Dyed in the Wool by Spincycle Yarns (100% Wool; 200 yds): 5 Skeins.

ALTERNATE SPORT YARN: Zauberwolle by Schoppel Wolle (100% Virgin Wool; 100g/273 yds): 3 (4) Skeins.  This marled yarn is a slowly shifting long gradient in a satisfying array of colors.

ALTERNATE SOCK / LIGHT FINGERING YARN: Zauberball 100 by Schoppel Wolle (100% virgin wool; 100g/437 yds): 3 (3) Skeins.  This lightweight, long gradient yarn can be held double for a thicker gauge.

ALTERNATE DK YARN: Marla by Manos del Uruguay (100% Superwash Merino Wool; 100g/273 yds): 3 (4) Skeins.  This marled gradient yarn is a gorgeous blend of colors in some of the softest Uruguayan merino wool available.  

ALTERNATE DK YARN: Gradient by Schoppel Wolle (100% Virgin Merino Wool; 100g/284 yds): 3 (4) Skeins.  This slowly changing gradient yarn is made of a slightly felted merino wool single ply that will resist pilling and is perfect for accessories.

ALTERNATE WORSTED YARN: Rios by Malabrigo (100% Superwash Merino Wool/ 100g/210 yds.  4 (4) Skeins.  Variegated, kettle dyed yarn that is vat dyed in small batches.  Each dye lot can vary dramatically.  We suggest using the highly variegated colorways of Rios for this pattern so that the texture and colors are amplified.

SIZE: Small (Large)

FINISHED MEASUREMENTS: Wingspan: 75 (91.5)" x Centerline: 24 (25)"
YARDAGE:  These are just approximations. Total yarn usage will depend on the yarn you use (fiber content, ply, etc.), your personal gauge, and any modifications you may make. Sport - 850 (1,035) yds.  DK - 800 (830) yds.  Worsted: 800 (830) yds. Sock: 990 (1,200) yds.  Fingering: 1,050 (1,290) yds.  
SKILL LEVEL: Intermediate: I-cord, Kitchener Stitch, pick up stitches

NEEDLES: Size US 6 / 4mm 32" circular needle, or size needed to obtain gauge for sport weight yarn for Small. Size 7 / 4.5mm 32" circular needle, or size needed to obtain gauge for DK or Worsted weight yarn for Large. 
OTHER TOOLS: 2 Removable Stitch Markers, Tapestry Needle, & Row Counter (Optional)
GAUGE: Small: 19sts x 30 to 40 rows = 4" over stitch pattern, after blocking.  Large: 16sts x 30 to 37 rows = 4" over stitch pattern, after blocking.  Row gauge is offered as a range, since how hard you block this stitch pattern, will determine how much the stitch pattern opens up.
