Skywalker

Skywalker is a semi-circular shawl, worked from the top down.  You start with 9 stitches picked up around a garter stitch rectangle, and work out with increase rows loosely based on Elizabeth Zimmermann’s Pi-Shawl formula.  

Lace patterns are placed in between these increase rows.  The stitches start out quite easy and get a bit more challenging as the project progresses and you are ready to learn new skills!

MATERIALS
You will need approx. 400 yards of fingering or lace weight yarn.  A luxury yarn you have been saving for an extra special reason would be PERFECT for this project!
