Escape to the mountains; escape to the beach; let the wind lift your stitches to a place of windswept texture and peace. As the wind whispers through your Air Bender shawl the unique abstract motifs reflect your chosen drop sequence. As the seasons change the textures do too from airy summer full drops to blustery winter no drops.
Construction: 3 patterns in 1! Air Bender MKAL creates a gradient soft triangular-shaped top-down shawl. Prior to the bind off, select to craft the “Full,” “Partial,” or “Sans” drop sequence.
Required skills: knit, purl, increase, decrease, and cable.
The tech edited intermediate level pattern is fully written and fully charted. The pattern also includes a schematic and bind off how to on the Knit Eco Chic blog.
