New Pattern Available: Ship's Ashore


“I sat for years awaiting my ship to come ashore,
testing the winds and looking toward the horizon. 
Want was much and need was more,
then I picked up the oars.
Now, my ship’s ashore.” -JML

Finished Measurements and Yarn Requirements will vary based on your yarn & needle selection as well as chosen number of Body Chart repeats.  As a general guide I offer the following:

Sizes:
Blocked dimensions (3 body chart repeats): 74” wide x 27” deep

Yarn Requirements: Approximately 490 yards of fingering weight yarn for shawl as shown (3 body chart repeats).
Shown in Fino (color: pocketwatch) by Manos del Uruguay.
Approximately 630 yards of fingering weight yarn for shawl worked with 4 body chart repeats.

Needles: Size 8 (5mm) 47-60” circular needles
Note: For garter stitch tab and first couple of rows I prefer to work on either short straights or DPN’s.  It provides more control and less clutter, allowing you to establish your setup with more stability.

Supplies: Four (4) Stitch markers (sm), tapestry needle.  Row counter may be helpful.

Gauge: Your gauge will vary depending on your yarn choice and number of pattern repeats.

Available now on Ravelry - $4.00
