New Pattern Available: Slipstream

This scalene shaped shawl will remind you of paddling down the river, coasting along in the white, bubbling slipstream flow between rocks and over shelves into the quiet pools of deep peaceful blue on a sunny afternoon.

Finished Measurements and Yarn Requirements will vary based on your yarn & needle selection as well as chosen number of Body Chart repeats. As a general guide I offer the following:

Sizes / Blocked Dimensions:
Small: (11 body chart repeats) 50” wide x 28” deep
Large: (16 1/2 body chart repeats) 73” wide x 40” deep

Yarn Requirements:
Small: Approximately 420 yards of fingering weight yarn
Large: Approximately 840 yards of fingering weight yarn
Shown in Merino Light (color: cousteau) by Madeline Tosh.

Needles:
Size 4 (3.5mm) 40-47” circular needles
Note: For cast on and setup, I prefer to work on either short straights or DPN’s. It provides more control and less clutter, allowing you to establish your setup with more stability.

Supplies:
Cable needle, tapestry needle for weaving in ends, and row counter may be helpful.

Gauge:
Approximately 24 sts in pattern = 4” (10cm).
Your gauge will vary depending on your yarn and needle choice.
