With Arms Outstretched Shawl - Knitting Pattern

On Sale
Added to cart
With Arms Outstretched is an asymmetrical triangle shawl that alternates between a geometric mosaic pattern and an easy to memorize lace pattern. There are some pretty awesome things about this shawl, no floats, no purling and it utilizes almost all your yarn, so no leftovers!
While gauge is not usually important with shawls, it is for this design. I intentionally designed it to use as much of each color as possible, so it is important to check your gauge!
A special thank you to MadelineTosh for providing yarn support for this design, and to Wendy Bernard for her amazing stitch dictionary where I found this great mosaic pattern.
