Level is a simple colorblock design that can bold or serene depending on the colors chosen. It comes in two sizes--a 48.5" version for throwing over your shoulders and a 63" version for really wrapping up in. The center triangle is worked in garter stitch from the bottom up, using intarsia for the color work. Once the center triangle is finished, stitches are picked up on the lower two edges to work the solid-colored triangles. They are knit simultaneously, shaped using the German short row technique. Finished measurements are 17.25" x 48.5" for the small version and 22" x 63" for the larger size. It can be hand washed and dried flat. Brooklyn Tweed has assigned this Nancy Whitman design a skill level rating of 4 out of 5 (Adventurous Intermediate).
This shawl is designed for Brooklyn Tweed's Loft. Loft is a woolen-spun fingering weight yarn that is light and airy, perfect for trapping warm air within the fabric for a garment that is as functional as it is beautiful.
