Sock-Yarn Shawls: Sparrow

Today it's all about Sparrow, the last of the mid-size shawls in Sock-Yarn Shawls II.

The story of how Sparrow came to be is an interesting one. My book was all done, but a few weeks after I had sent everything off to the publisher, I received a request for one more shawl for the book. The new book contains fewer charts than the first one (and many of them turned out to be smaller in size than the first book), and so one more shawl was needed to keep the book at the right length and look we were all going for. I was happy to add another shawl to the book! It was fun after having a few weeks off from designing shawls to get the call to design one more. I felt so refreshed and ready to go on shawl design again and Sparrow was born.

I LOVE the shape of this shawl. This was the first one with this shape I've designed, but since then I've used it for my popular Savanna shawl, as well as a couple more upcoming patterns. It's started with a few rows of half-circle shaping, and then you transition into a wedge construction. You can wear these shawls so many different ways!
My Sparrow shawl is knit out of Hazel Knits Entice. Yum. One of my favorite yarns! I'm so glad I had a chance to add one more shawl to my book to include another shawl with Wendee's lovely yarns.

Stay tuned for Thursday, when I'll start talking about the large shawls in the book!

  2. Hi there! I am having trouble with beginning chart A! I have the requisite 162 sts on the needle, butI can't seem to start row one (knitting first 2sts, sm before beginning chart) and end up 2sts before next marker (which would be the next lot of 55 sts, after knitting spine stitch.) Did you have any issues with commencing the chart initially or am I misunderstanding everything?! I am sooo keen to get going, but I have such dread! Any advice would be gratefully recieved! Yours looks fabulous xx
