New Pattern: Taina’s Arrow

I had two skeins of Handu singles, pink with a little bit of blue speckles. I wanted to knit a shawl with them and to try the arrow shape since it’s a rather interesting way of making a triangle. I thought I’d go with something simple since the yarn was variegated and would hide a more complex patterning.

A previous shawl of mine, Taina, had been very addictive to knit so I used the same sequence of eyelets and garter stitch. The resulting shawl is called Taina’s Arrow.

The model shawl is 65 cm deep and 210 cm wide after blocking. It’s a very good size for a tall woman like me (I’m 180 cm/5’11¨), and it won’t be overly large for medium or smaller women, either.

Neuloin huivin kahdesta sinisillä täplillä maustetusta vaaleanpunaisesta Handun sinkusta. Halusin kokeilla nuolen muotoista huivia, koska ne näyttivät niin mielenkiintoisilta. Päätin käyttää koukuttavaksi osoittautunutta Tainan kuviota, jossa vuorottelevat aina oikein neulonut raidat ja yksinkertaisimmat mahdolliset pitsikerrokset. Lopputulos: Tainan nuoli eli Taina’s Arrow.
