for Barbara Benson Designs 2013
Knit until you run out of yarn, that is the plan with this piece. Designed with Malabrigo Arroyo in the colorway Marte (Spanish for Mars) while following the Mars Rover mission; this curiously shaped wrap is somewhere between a shawl and a scarf. If you use a lot of yardage - you get a shawl, if you use less you get something easy to wrap as a scarf. It is also a truly unisex pattern, you can decide which way it goes based on your color choice.
Using a mixture of stockinette and garter this pattern was designed to show off the beautiful variegated colors of hand-dyed yarn. Testers have used weights as varied as fingering, lace held double, Aran and DK to craft this shawl. All of them worked beautifully. When selecting a needle for different yarns I recommend starting at one needle size above the largest listed for the yarn. For the heavier weight yarns you will most likely go up several to get a good drape.
