winnowing, a pattern by Bristol Ivy published in Brooklyn Tweed's Wool People Vol. 2.
It's a very simple design. The entire shawl is half twisted rib, with yarnovers used for shaping and design. Yet the finished object is a thing of complex beauty. The only complaint (no love is unconditional), is that (as with most things worth having) knitting this is a commitment. It took me three weeks of monogomous knitting. Half of that time was spent on the seemingly never-ending knit-on border.
Here is my finished shawl, made with Tosh Merino Light in Smokey Orchid. (The name, Blowing Smoke, is a twist of the pattern name "winnowing," which can mean to blow, and the yarn color.)
