Barbara W. (Plucky Knitter Series)
The third and last in the Plucky Knitter Series, this richly patterned shawl is a celebration of Barbara Walker’s pluckiness. It uses several textured stitches worked in worsted or aran weight yarn for a cozy testament to the magic of simple knit and purl stitches.
Two gauges are included in the pattern; using worsted weight yarn makes the Medium size, while aran weight yarn results in the Large size. Because the shawl is worked top-down, additional repeats can be added for custom sizing.
Skill level: Intermediate. Both written and charted instructions are provided.
Recommended needle size:For Medium--1 32-inch or longer US #7/4.5mm circular needle or size to obtain gauge
For Large--1 32-inch or longer US #8/5mm circular needle or size to obtain gauge
