Fractal Wing Shawl Pattern

By: L Jones from
Fractal Wing Shawl
Fractal Wing Shawl

"Fractal wing is a garter stitch shawl created from a fractal pattern, that grows into a unique wing shape. Shaped only with increases and decreases this is a relaxing knit that creates an impressively dramatic effect. I used: Chameleon Yarn SW Merino/Silk Blend one skein each in Paris (pink/grey) and Murmansk (blue/grey) or 180g 405yds/370m of yarn. If using 2 colours you will use similar quantities of both yarns with just 10-15g more required of the colour you start the first section with (if working the size as written).Needles/gauge: I used a 2.75mm needle, but am a loose knitter. Average knitters might want to start with a 3-4mm (US 2.5-5) needle. Gauge is not critical, my sample came out at 22 sts and 41 rows = 4” 10 cm in garter stitch after wet blocking. Construction, instructions and techniques Just knit and yo sts are used for most of the shawl (there is some decreasing for the final border). There are no short rows or anything complicated; this is ideal travel knitting. Is knit side to side so you never have a huge number of sts on the needle. Sizes My blue/pink sample is 9 repeats and makes a good medium sized-shawl. The other two samples shown are 10 & 11 repeats. making longer, larger shawls. It is easy to resize this shawl by adding or subtracting repeats to fit the yarn you have. 7 repeats makes a small cowl/shawl."

This is such an unusual shawl. The instructions look simple to follow. You just have to pay a bit more attention. I would not say it is an easy knit. I really like the effect with the two colors. I know it I get it right I will have a lot of requests for the shawl. It is perfect for both inside and outside to add that extra layer. Thank you for the pattern.
