Eat your leafy greens

Or, better yet, knit them. Behold – Shannon’s newest lovely pattern! Leafy Greens has long arms so it will stay securely round your shoulders. We cannot, however, guarantee that you will absorb any vitamins by osmosis…

From the pattern:

Inspired by a simple leaf motif and the loveliest green yarn in my stash, I played with shawl-shaping and pattern-mixing, and after a few fits and starts, came up with this pattern. In either fingering or sport, the long arms allow for many different wrapping styles, and construction gives the piece a soft curve in back.

You can get a hard copy of the pattern in our shop or on our web store, or you can download it electronically from Ravelry.

Fingering-weight version:
Gauge: 24 sts and 32 rows in stockinette (gauge isn’t super important, because this is a shawl).
Needles: US 4 (3.5 mm) circular needle (24” or longer) OR size needed to get YOU the gauge YOU want for this shawl.
Yarn: about 580 yards. Sample shown in Dream in Color Smooshy, colorway Goodluck Jade.
Finished measurements: 72” wide, 16” deep at middle.

Sport-weight version:
Gauge: 20 sts and 28 rows in stockinette (gauge isn’t super important, because this is a shawl).
Needles: US 5 (4mm) circular needle (24” or longer) OR size needed to get YOU the gauge YOU want for this shawl.
