Project Details

“And I guess that’s why they call it the blues, Time on my hands could be time spent with you…” - Elton John   I’m sure that Elton never thought that this famous line would ever pertain to knitting, but I couldn’t stop thinking of this song while I was dyeing the yarn for the kits & designing this half-pi shawl. It’s a very fun and addictive knit since you’re always changing either patterns or colors or both. Because of this you’re sure to find yourself sneaking in “just a quick row” here and there whenever you find yourself with a little extra time on your hands.   The shawl begins with a garter-tab and progresses through 6 lace & garter sections before ending with an Icelandic Bind-off (my favorite!) to give it a lovely, stretchy finishing edge. The lace sections feature simple through moderately-advanced lace knitting techniques (Eyelets, Vines, & Estonian Snow Flowers to name a few) so if you're wanting to stretch your legs a bit and learn some new stitches, this is a great pattern to work through!   All stitch patterns are both written-out and charted.

Yarn Details

Yumi Yarns Tsuyoi Fingering Tsuyoi in Japanese means "strong"; "powerful"; "mighty"; "tough", everything you could want in a sock yarn! The bonus with this workhorse yarn from Yumi Yarns is that it's also buttery soft with a medium twist so it's the perfect choice for socks but will also have great drape & stitch definition in a lacy shawl.
