Pawleys Island is a place to get away and unwind. Laura Aylor
shares the design story for her Pawleys Shawl..."This shawl
resulted when I needed something relaxing but not boring to knit because life
got a little too crazy. Bands of stockinette and garter stitch are separated by
eyelets. Scrumptious yarn makes the simple sublime and gives you a perfect shawl
for chilly evenings on the beach or chilly evenings when you wish you
were at the beach.
I’m a big fan of getting the hard stuff out of the way up
front while you have that new-project momentum - top-down sweaters, bottom-up
shawls. Starting at the bottom edge means the rows get shorter and shorter so it
seems like you pick up speed as you go."
Make it smaller by knitting in a lighter weight yarn at a
tighter gauge or by leaving out the first two sections.
A fingering weight version can be knit at 18 stitches/4” on US
5’s(3.75mm) and 6’s(4mm) which will use approximately 900 yards and have a
wingspan of about 72” and a depth of around 36”. (Shown in the last two photos.)
