Plover Shawl

IMG_7229

Named for the little shore birds that scurry with invisible legs and fly together in cloud formation over the coastline of New England, this shawl is worked on the bias in a completely reversible rib and eyelet pattern- there is no right or wrong side.The Plover Shawl is asymmetrical and is what I call and one-and-all-size shawl, it can be worked to any size desired just cast on and go until you run out of yarn or follow the patterns prescribed number of repeats for approximately the same dimensions listed below.This lovely little shawl/scarf/wrap has been my traveling companion since early August, once the pattern is established the 6 row repeat is easily memorized and because this uses only 1 skein it became a perfect on-the-road project that fit nicely in my purse, in my beach bag, occasionally a sweatshirt pocket.IMG_8033Finished Measurements

    Gorgeous! I love that it’s reversible, and Swans Island is one of my favorites. I’ve never used the fingering–my yarn store only carries worsted. I guess I may just have to order some!
