Inspired by the warm rich honey tones of this yarn, I envisioned sunny fields of wheat, waving in the wind. This is a bottom up shawl design that uses short rows to give a slight curvature that will hug your shoulders to keep you toasty warm. ~ Tina Sanders
I’m so pleased and excited to announce that my Honey Hugs shawl is now available to the public. Honey Hugs was designed for the Yummy Yarn Studio Wrapped in up in Yummy Yarn Club 2012. The pattern includes full written and charted directions and has been test knit and tech edited.
The Facts: This is a bottom up shawl design that uses short rows to give a slight curvature that will hug your shoulders to keep you toasty warm. The first section of the lace pattern is super quick and very easy to memorize. As you progress to the second section, you will start forming a slight arrow looking design. The last four rows of section two increases to 250 stitches and then decreases to 216 stitches.
This design is knitted back and forth on the circular needle, includes a lace pattern and short rows to provide a very gentle curve. The curvature of the design drapes nicely on ones shoulders and will stay in place. A chart for the lace pattern is included and note that all stitches on the wrong side are purled.
Materials: This project will require approximateley 500 to 550 yards (457 – 503 m) of Aran weight yarn or yarn to match gauge of 10 stitches and 8 rows = 2 inches in Stocking Stitch, a sizeUS 9 (5.5 mm) 29” circular needle, stitch markers and a tapestry needle for weaving in ends.
Finished Size: 21” (53.3cm) from mid-point x 60” (152.3cm) wide.
