The blank page seems to mock you. You stare at it, head in hands, as your coffee grows cold. You know the words are there, just waiting to be released into the world, but you can’t quite find them. Time slows to a crawl, then suddenly - your eyes grow wide, and with one last sip of coffee, your fingers fly across the keys.
The Scrivener Shawl is dedicated to the creatives out there, in all the myriad arts - writing, dance, music, acting, crafting, anything that results in the world being better for the thing you’ve created. Crocheted from the top down, it basically flies off the hook
Techniques: Magic Circle, dc, hdc, front and back post stitches, bead stitch. Stitch explanations and links to tutorials provided.
Yarn: You will need approximately 820 yards of a fingering weight yarn. The sample uses Playful Day Yarns’ Yak Sock in the color Olive. I suggest using a natural fiber so that the shawl will grow with blocking.
Hook: Size H/5.0mm or whatever size gives you a beautiful drape to the fabric
Notions: Tapestry needle, scissors, stitch marker
Final Measurements: 66in (168cm) wingspan by 31in (79cm) deep after blocking. The gauge listed is after blocking.
