Notes from the Designer:

The idea of the Fences pattern came to me when I read a quote from George Addair who said, “Everything you’ve ever wanted is on the other side of fear.” Fear is like a fence; we wait on one side of the fence with our dreams and aspirations waiting on the other. We can peek through the lattice at the top of the fence and see those dreams, but still we stay behind the fence. This beautiful gradient, silk design has delicate, little fences in a row with lattice in between each row of fences. On either side is the top of the fence with the beautiful lacework and the trefoils as the fence spikes. When making and wearing this lovely scarf or shawl, dream your dreams, and climb those fences! Do not let fear keep you from your dreams! 

  • Click the Videos tab to watch a video tutorial showing how to work the trefoils featured in this pattern. 
  • Version 1 sample shown used approximately 348 yds (318 m) total: Color A) 167 yds (153 m), Color B) 91 yds (83 m), and Color C) 90 yds (82 m).
  • Version 2 sample shown used approximately 809 yds (740 m) total.
  • Gauge is important to this shawl. Please take the time to make a gauge swatch, or you may run out of yarn.
  • The ch 2 at the beginning of a row counts as a double crochet.
  • Last stitch goes into the top ch of the ch 2 at the end of the row.
  • Version 2 was made by alternating Rows 2-6 and 7-11 on each side to desired width before starting Rows 12-15 and the outside border. Color changes are given in pattern.
