K12tog March Project - Waterside Shawl & Fish Ladder Cowl

PROJECT: Waterside Shawl by Kat Archer of Bullseye Knits and Fish Ladder Cowl by Anna Leander

RECOMMENDED YARNS: Blue Moon Fiber Arts Socks That Rock Lightweight or Super Sparkle OR a Waterside Shawl Kit

WATERSIDE SHAWL (knit) - Like light reflecting on water, the colors of this shawl ripple and fade from one to the next. A perfect canvas for your favorite color palette, choose one that evokes sunrise over a river, mid-day on the coast, or any other waterside locale.

Materials: Approximately 1055 yards/965 meters fingering-weight yarn, split between four colors as follows: Color A: 400 yards/365 meters. Color B: 125 yards/115 meters. Color C: 215 yards/195 meters. Color D: 315 yards/290 meters. You'll also need US #4/3.5 mm (or size to get gauge) needles for working flat, and a tapestry needle.

FISH LADDER COWL (crochet) - Forty miles east of Portland on the Columbia River, the Bonneville Dam was built to power New Deal economic development for humans but presented a literally insurmountable barrier for fish. Fish ladders were built to help hundreds of thousands of salmon and other fish make their spawning runs upriver each year. Evoking the stair-step structure of the fish ladders, this cowl uses a triple-crochet stitch and long chains to create a loose, airy, netlike fabric — more suitable for catching well-accessorized humans than speeding salmon.

Materials: Approximately 400 yards/365 meters fingering-weight yarn. Size I/9-5.5 mm crochet hook (or size needed to get correct gauge). Tapestry needle.
