Fingerless bulky yarn mittens added to the shop.
Their color is a very dark blue. Hard to capture 🤔

Another shawl pattern I came up with. It’s more ‘instructions’, than a pattern. But I hope it works for the ones, who want to knit it. Feel free to leave me a comment & ask questions.
Please do not sell the pattern, but feel free to make and sell beautiful things made from it. ❤
Knit on your own peril – Asymmetric triangle shawl
Sample shawl is knit with Lionbrand Mandala (~ Sport / DK weight) & Needle size #5mm
It can be made in any yarn weight, it will just get bigger or smaller.
You keep working in Pattern until you are either finished with your yarn or bored 😉
Keep enough yarn for bind-off and if you want, for a slip stitch border along the wrong side of your work.
Pattern calls for 3 edge stitches on each side, 1st st slipped purlwise for straight edges, rest of stitches always knit.
Wrong side rows are always as follows: K3, K1FB, p, K3
For the pattern repeats you need 10 stitches and they go: K2tog, yo, k8
The stitches reduce on the right side to make it one straight edge, and increases on the left to form the asymmetric triangle. That means that your repeats ‘wander’ to the right and decrease with every row.
Just work them as they come.
Same with the new repeats you start at the end of the row. You need 10 + 1 or two stitches to form the new repeat and have the border stitches look nice. Don’t be too picky on the numbers, it won’t always be the same 😉
k 1 row (makes it a better foundation)
sl1p, k2, k2tog (alternative: ssk, see photo), yo (this yo is always right before the left side edge stitches), k3
sl1p, k2, k1fb, p to last 3 st, k3
Keep working until you have 10 + 4 stitches between the edge stitches
sl1p, k2, k2tog, [k7, k2tog, yo], k2, yo, k3
Pattern repeat is in brackets, the number behind it will increase with each row until you have enough stitches for a new pattern repeat. Keep working until you have maybe 15g of yarn left, or enough to do 6-7 more rows, incl. Bind-off. A bit more, if you want to do the slip st edging
Finishing edge rows:
sl1p, k2, *yo, k2tog*, k last 3 st
garter rows for the next 5-6 rows, depending on which side you want your bind-off row, bind off loosely, do not cut yarn, if you want the slip st edge.
Turn your work to the wrong side and slip stitch all around, along the edge, try out where the stitches work best, work loosely. This will make the edge a bit more solid
The beautiful shawl patterntest for Thefiberofbeing is done.
I love the colors of this lightweight Beauty.
It’s perfect for cooler evenings, or Restaurant and Casino visits 💕
Will be listed in the shop tomorrow or later today.
Custom orders welcome
That’s what it looks like, when I mention ‘blocking’ things.
Soak them and pin them on blocking boards to dry. 🙂
Finished 3 yesterday, 3 more today and started another set.
Tomorrow is a ‘no golf’ day, so I can catch up on blocking, photographing and lusting 🙂
