In Greek, Kairos means a propitious moment for decision or action…
Kairos Shawl casts on at one tip and increases towards the center, where a relaxing textured stitch is worked in two colors before launching you into the central Kairos panel. A little more texture is worked before decreasing across the second wing of the shawl, working to the opposite tip. Stitches are then picked up along the bottom edge, where a playful striped edging is worked with a beaded picot bind off.
Kits are available for Kairos Shawl here or through Emma’s Yarn stockists!
Kairos Shawl is deliberately designed to have a narrow width at the back and elongated length at the sides, to give the illusion of a larger shawl than you typically get from one skein. Once you get started you’ll have this spunky, sparkly shawl knit up in no time!
