a long, lacy, scarf/shawl mashup in squishy worsted weight

Wide and curved, Galax can be styled like a scarf or a shawl. The sideways edging is worked modularly, with increases creating the stitches for the future body section. This prevents picking up stitches later and makes for a smooth, lacy join between the two sections.

  • narrow wrap, somewhere between a shawl and a scarf
  • pattern is charted and written
  • can be made in any length
  • modification notes are included for using a different yardage, working at a different gauge, using more than one color
  • modular construction starting with the sideways edging
  • connected entirely with short rows, no picked up stitches or seaming
  • shape is gently curved
  • works nicely wrapped tightly around the neck, or draped loosely
  • chunky and warm in worsted weight yarn

you'll need
  • approx 660 yards / 600 meters of worsted weight yarn, sample is in HiKoo Kenzie (5 balls); or use modification notes to size yours based on the yardage you have (at least 410 yards / 375 meters worsted weight, for a shorter length); or a different weight to make a different width
  • size US 8 (5mm) 32" (or longer) circular needle (or size to get gauge of 17 stitches and 21 rows per 4 inches); or use notes to work at a different gauge

Yarn HiKoo Kenzie (#1008 kale), 5 balls to make the sample size, 660 yards / 600 meters were used; you can make a slightly shorter version with 4 balls.
