Notes From the Designer: 

Zakret is the Polish word for bend. This shawl curves gently as it grows, creating an effortlessly wearable shape. While you could make this shawl in just two colors, the simple pattern repetition shows off multiple colors beautifully. Select two colors that have a bit of contrast with each other, and then as you progress, deepen each color for a fade effect. Or just choose color combinations that make you happy! You never work more than one color at a time, which makes this shawl a perfect introduction to easy colorwork. Since you start at the tip, you can customize the size by working as many or as few repeats as you wish. 

  • Click the Videos tab to watch a tutorial demonstrating different sections of this pattern. 
  • Gauge is not crucial but could affect overall size and yardage
  • The stitch count increases by 1 stitch every right-side row. The decrease and increase stitches on wrong-side rows counteract each other, so the stitch count remains the same as the previous row. This creates the overall curved shape of the shawl. 
  • As your shawl grows, you may want to use stitch markers to verify your stitch count. 
  • Carry the unused color loosely up the side, and catch the unused yarn into each turning chain to anchor the float.
