Kith - A4 Printed Pattern
Younger brother to Masgot, Kith is just as much fun. If you share Garter love, this shawl is for you!
The shawl begins at the top center and is worked outwards to the border with one wing asymetrically longer than the other. It is worked primarily in alternating 2-row stripes of Garter stitch with six inserts of a third color, which are shaped with short rows and give the shawl even more asymmetry. The border is also worked in the third contrasting color.
One: approx. 190cm/75” wide and 72 cm/28.25” long at center spine.
5 skeins in three colors of Tukuwool Fingering by Tukuwool (100% wool; 195m/213y per 50g); 2 skeins of CC1 – 11 Auri; 2 skeins of CC2 – 1 Sake; 1 skein of CC3 – 13 Uupo.
Or 3 colors of any other fingering weight yarn with similar yardage, which gives you the correct gauge.
4.0 mm/US #6 circular needle (100 cm/40” long).
3 stitch markers, tapestry needle for weaving.
18 sts and 34 rows = 10 cm/4” in Garter st measured flat after wet blocking.
The gauge isn’t crucial on this project, but differences will affect the finished size as well as the required yardage.
