Piewhacket is a one-skein garter shawl constructed from three sequential short row triangles which build on each other, with a final uneven edging knit from live stitches using additional short rows. The resulting asymmetrical shape drapes perfectly around the neck and shoulders, and is completely reversible for ultimate wearability. The short row shaping means never having to work a huge number of stitches, and also shows off the unique beauty of variegated or semi-solid yarn.

Techniques & Skills Used: cable CO, knit, increasing, short rows.

Size: one size; approximately 52” wingspan and 8” depth (12” depth at points).

Yarn: Malabrigo Yarn Sock (100% superwash merino, 440 yards/100g); 1 skein, shown in Abril. Sample used approximately 375 yards of light fingering weight yarn.

Other Materials: US 6 40” circular needle, or size to match gauge; Stitch markers (3 different); Yarn needle.

Gauge: 18 st and 40 rows/4” in garter stitch, after blocking. Gauge is not critical for this project, however a different gauge may result in a smaller or larger finished shawl, and different yardage requirements.
