Arcus

16 Jul

Arcus is an unusually shaped shawl. I designed it especially for sock yarns with long colour repeats and these are the yarns, which will work best with this design. The top of the shawl is V shaped so that the sides will sit on the shoulders comfortably, without sliding down.

Difficulty

Intermediate

Yarn
Jawoll Magic Dégradé Sock yarn, about 565 m / 618 yds
Other yarn suggestions: Knit Picks Chroma, Schoppel-Wolle Zauberball, DROPS Fabel

Notions
Needles: US6/4.0mm circular needle or size needles needed to obtain gauge
Accessories: 8 stitch markers, some scrap yarn, darning needle


Necessary Skills

Knitting in the round, M1, short rows (w&t but no picking up of the wraps), picking up stitches, P2tog & K2tog
(optional: toe-up magic cast on)

Gauge

22 sts x 32 rows / 10 cm – 4” in stocking stitch before blocking

Size
One size, about 168 cm / 66” wide x 44 cm / 17.5” tall blocked


Pattern Cost: $4.50
