A Bow in the Sky – Now Available!

Half Circle Shawl in gray Perennial yarn with neon pink, coral, yellow, and green stripes on a cloth mannequin with a dark grey background

A Bow in the Sky features one of our best selling yarns, Perennial. The pattern, and accompanying kits, were available exclusively through our retailers for Local Yarn Store Day 2019. With the next LYS Day right around the corner on April 25th, we are releasing last year’s pattern to the general public!

This shawl is constructed as a half circle, based on the half-pi shawl method. A garter stitch selvedge of four stitches is worked at the beginning and end of each row. Each eyelet row doubles the number of stitches between the garter selvedges, plus one additional eyelet increase for symmetry.

The lace edging is worked horizontally across the live stitches at the end.
