Constant Companion

Previously published in the October 2015 issue of 'I Like Knitting' magazine, this oversized yet cozy and elegant shawl is inspired by walks I take with my dogs during the last days of summer as the seasons change and the promise of Fall is in the air. The beautiful green hues of the yarn are reminiscent of the last days of green grass on a crisp fall day while yarnovers and decreases create little lacy Paw Prints that meander along the edge of the shawl.

Instructions are included to customize the length and depth of the shawl so that it can be made with as little as 400 yards (365m) of fingering weight yarn.

The shawl is knit side to side with the body of the shawl and lace border worked simultaneously. All increases and decreases are worked in the garter stitch body of the shawl.

Charted and written instructions are included for both the Paw Print pattern and the lace edging.
