Notes From the Designer:
Ireland is well known for its “40 shades of green,” but in Autumn, you will also find a vast array of golds, rusts, and browns, as well as many shades of blue in both water and sky. The patchwork of fields, divided by grey and white stone walls, are a reminder of the tenacity of the people who created them. Fascinating stone structures are plentiful, such as the impressive, ancient site of Newgrange, a large, circular passage tomb and an ancient temple. At over 5000 years old, it is older than Stonehenge and the Great Pyramids.
This boomerang shaped shawl was inspired by the colors and textures of the land. Cables and slipped stitches create lines and circles to represent the divisions of fields, an abundance of stones, and the rich heritage of the Irish people.
- Click the Videos tab to watch a tutorial on how to work the special stitches in the pattern.
- Making a gauge swatch is critical to achieving the desired results. Please DO NOT assume that you knit to the same gauge as I do! Yes, it is an extra step, but it also ensures that what you are knitting will produce what you expect. And you won’t need to worry about running out of yarn. If you are substituting yarn, it is especially important to verify that it behaves in the same way as the yarn called for in the pattern.
- Typically, when working slipped stitches, you want to carry the yarn loosely behind the work, so as not to gather the work. In this case, however, you DO want to raise the stitches in the columns. Do not pull the yarn tightly, but work it with your normal tension.
- Stitch counts are designated in the Border instructions as: (#border sts/total sts).
- The M1p may be worked either left leaning or right leaning.
