Details

Inspired by the smith of the Ainur in The Silmarillion, the Aulë Shawl is a modern take on the traditional triangular shawl shape. Its modular shaping and large color-blocked panels make a bold statement, and its simple stitch patterns make it the perfect pattern for showcasing any special yarns you have in your stash. The loose-ish gauge creates a warm, bouncy fabric, and even though it uses only three skeins of yarn, it makes a large shawl that lies perfectly around the shoulders.

The Refracted Sweater is a comfy cropped pullover with a striking slipped stitch pattern and plenty of positive ease. It is worked in the round from the bottom up until the sleeve divide, at which point the front and back are worked flat separately and then joined with a three needle bind-off at the shoulders. The sleeves are then picked up and worked in the round from the shoulder down to the cuff, where 1x1 ribbing is worked until twice the length of the cuff for a comfy rolled cuff.
