Designed for Bliss, a new colorway from Sundara Yarn.
To me, bliss is knowing how to appreciate what we already have--including the norm, even the seemingly mundane, in the midst of the chaos that life tends to throw at us. In celebration of this, Blissful is an asymmetrical stockinette shawl graced by elegant columns of leaves, representing the beauty and joy brought to our lives by the simple everyday.
The shawl is worked with a slight bias from one tip to one long (side) edge, with the wingspan being the right edge of the work. This construction allows you to keep knitting until your desired size. Thus, the shawl is very customizable and will work with almost any yarn; adjust yardage and needle size accordingly.
The pink sample has ten repeats of Body Part 2 and used 460 yds on size 4 needles with a wingspan of 52”.
Approx. 400-500 yds of sport/worsted weight with size 6-8 needles will produce a shawl of similar size to that shown. The yellow sample has a wingspan of 56” and used 500 yds Sundara Aran Silky Merino with size 7 needles.
Written instructions used with a chart of the leaves for reference.
