Emanate

Presenting Emanate - a different take on the traditional top-down, center-out shawl!


Unlike your typical top-down shawl, which starts with only a few stitches and increases rapidly, this design begins with a long provisional cast-on that will form the center spine of the shawl, followed by relatively slow increases. Each u-shaped color stripe uses short-rows to build up more fabric on the sides than at the bottom, so the shawl gets wider much faster than it grows in height. After the final stripe, an i-cord bind-off around the entire shawl gives the edge a finished look.


This design was a collaboration with Rachel of Night Owl Fibers. Her super squishy Snowy Owl DK was such a pleasure to work with and her colorways so rich and vibrant!
