Kline Shawl | The Knitting Vortex

Originally published in knit.wear Spring/Summer 2016, the Kline pattern is now available from my Ravelry store, as an individual download in my usual pattern format.

Bold strokes of alternating smooth and rough texture stretch fluidly across this asymmetric shawl. The strict monochromatic palette is broken with colorful accents that transition to dominance at the far edge; try pairing a speckled yarn with a bold contrast for a striking visual result.

Techniques & Skills Used: cable CO, knit/purl, increasing/decreasing.
Size: 80” length and 21” depth, customizable.
Yarn: Madelinetosh tosh merino light (100% merino wool; 420 yards/384m/100g); 1 skein each MC and CC, shown in Optic and Edison Bulb, respectively. The sample used approximately 420 yards MC and 340 yards CC, but any amount of yarn in any combination may be used; see Designer’s Notes.
Other Materials: US 6 (4mm) 32” circular needle, or size to match gauge; Yarn needle.
Gauge: 20 st and 32 rows/4” in stockinette 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.
