Tunring Around the Edge


I have been having fun working out the math to figure out how much yarn I have to work with. After making the first shawl I had 20 grams of yarn left over.

Here is the breakdown:

  • 1st Segment – 892 stitches – 6%
  • 2nd Segment – 1330 stitches – 9%
  • 3rd Segment – 1918 stitches – 12%
  • 4th Segment – 2506 stitches – 16%
  • 5th Segment – 3094 stitches – 20%
  • 6th Segment – 2570 stitches – 17%
  • Edging – 3224 stitches – 21%

Total stitches – 15534

In the original pattern I only made 5 segments before the edging. I added in a lifeline in the 6th segment. In case 17% is too much, the next row back works out to 14%. Both of those should work with the 20 grams (20%) I had leftover from the first pattern. Gage will tell!

Its fabulous seeing this shawl through to the end of the second design test. Its great to see how it grows in the pictures. Makes my hands go faster to view it like this.
