Product details

Working with fingering weight yarn—particularly when you’re not wild about socks—can be a challenge. How many triangle shawls does one woman really need? This pattern explores other shapes for small shawls, or “fichus” (fee-shoos). Alternating which side of a marker the yarn over increases fall on the fichu results in wedges of increase sections instead of spirals. The end shape is a circular, rather than triangular, wrap. To counter the simple garter stitch but not confuse the eye, a bobble stitch bindoff is used.

Eydi (a derivative of “Edith”, which means “strife for wealth”) sits very comfortably on the shoulders, and can be worn in a variety of ways. I prefer pinning it at the collar with either a chopstick (shown above) or a pin (such as the one by Dawning Dreams as shown on p.2).
