Product Details

Eccentric and non-conforming, Lunatic Fringe is an off-kilter shawl that grows asymmetrically from the bottom up, and sprouts digit-like fringes on one side. The fringes are knit in as you go along by repeatedly binding off and casting on, while the body features alternating textural stripes. Cast on with a few stitches, Lunatic Fringe grows by increasing unequally along both sides to the long top edge, which is finished simply with a stretchy bind off.

Techniques & Skills Used: longtail CO, backwards loop CO, knit, increasing.

Yarn: The Fibre Company Terra, or 784 yards of aran weight yarn. I chose a thick & thin yarn with textural interest, to accentuate the erratic nature of the shawl; handspun would create a similar effect. Any yarn and any amount may be used; see pattern instructions to adjust for differing yardage.

Gauge: 14 st and 24 rows/4” in stockinette stitch after blocking.
