his design represents some small comforts like the sound of rain, going outside for walks, newly sprouting plants, & trying to take a few moments each day to notice little things that are good.

Blue Grass can function as a shawl or scarf; the trapezoid shape has a lace center panel flanked by slowly increasing garter stitch sides. Wrap and turn short rows (with NO picking up the wraps) help shape this interesting piece. Wrong side rows have simple patterning.  Flowing fringe adds a bit of romanticism, too.

Use either charts or the full written instructions. The design is suitable for fingering or sport weight yarns; be sure to adjust yardage requirements when making substitutions.  Pattern is written in American terminology.

Kit includes pattern and selected yarn. For yarn winding services, click here.  Pattern only selection includes PDF file only.
