Product details

This shawlette was designed for my dear sister-in-law, Stephanie, as a birthday surprise.

I designed lots of meaning into this fun shawlette

  1. the cast-on is 97 stitches (I met her in 1997)
  2. the first row of hearts has 5 hearts for her family; but two more rows of hearts show how she engenders love wherever she goes
  3. the garter edge is 5 stitches for my family
  4. the wavy border is life’s little ups and downs over her lifetime (with more ups than downs)
  5. the body lace ends after 60 rows (her birthday!).

This shawlette, using approx 320 yards of superwash Merino/bamboo sock yarn, works up fast and is very versatile to wear -- either wrapped around like a cowl, worn with the center point hanging down the back, or draped over one shoulder.

Directions are charted and written out.
