Product details

I wanted to play with shawl construction and design this year, and Aviation is my first tip-to-tip shawl. It's a long crescent shaped piece knit from one end to the other with lace and shaping worked in as you go.

A distinct leaf motif edges the shawl and ribs divide the body of the crescent into wedges that grow wider towards the center and narrower as you reach the far end. I love how the bold garter and ribs balance out the feminine leaf edging to make this both rustic and delicate at the same time. I also made sure that it would be nice and big so it feels and looks great when wrapped around your neck OR across your shoulders.

I think this is the perfect weight for a summer wrap - lightweight but still a nice wrap for some AC. It's just a bit rustic, but shows the stitch definition perfectly and the subtle sheen of the silk and the a touch of variation in the shading really look perfect in both garter and lace.

Sample is in Plucky Single. Other yarns are suggested substitutes.
