As summer slips imperceptibly into fall, at times you find yourself wanting a little something around your shoulders on breezy evenings. Summer Dusk is a shawl-cowl hybrid, knit mostly in the round, that eliminates the need to fuss with ends or shawl pins. You have plenty of time to knit this up for the first chilly evenings to come — it works up quickly in just 320 m of fingering-weight yarn. A great project for that special skein you’ve been saving!
Skills required: increasing, decreasing, yarn overs, working in the round
Finished measurements: neck opening: 58.5 cm; bottom edge circumference: 122 cm; depth in front: 38 cm
Gauge: 24 stitches to 10 cm of blocked stockinette stitch (both flat and circular). Avoid knitting at a tighter gauge, as it may make the finished garment difficult to get over your head. Knitting at a looser gauge will require more yarn
Note: Though conversions to the metric system have been made on this page for your convenience, the pattern itself uses American measurements.
