Wingspan Shawl Complete

Have you seen the free Wingspan shawl on Ravelry? You’ve got to check it out.

I had some sock yarn that didn’t feel like something I would want socks made out of. It was stiff, a little rough. But the colors are great. So I whipped it up into the Wingspan! This was the fastest thing I ever knit! It took me 5 days!

The pattern is intuitive, so once you get the rhythm down, you can roll right along. I liked it so much I cast on another ball of yarn to make another. This time I making some adjustments, adding stitches to the cast on so it’s bigger overall. I also have two balls so I can make it as big as I like. I’m not knitting as fast as before because I have some other projects on the needles.

  1. Hi,

    I got this pattern off ravelry and am really excited to try it out! I just had one question–the pattern specifies circular needles. Should I be knitting this on circular needles or on straight needles? Thanks for your help!


    • Maggie, I never knit with straight needles–everything is done on circulars. If you knit on straight, just make sure they are pretty long–90 stitches is a lot!

      I just got a good start on my second one with the nicest, fluffiest yarn!

      Good luck! I can’t wait to see yours when it’s done!

  2. Hi –

    Just found this pattern and am excited to give it a try. I’m a bit confused on the directions of CO 16 in the middle of my work. Does this mean 16 new stitches, cast on as I did at the beginning or 16 stitches picked up from the edge of a completed triangle?

    Thanks for your help,

    • Rhonda, welcome to the addiction! When you get your entire wedge done–you’ve run out of anymore room to move your stitch marker forward three stitches, you add the 16 stitches at the end…not at the beginning. I used a knit-on cast on and it was super easy!

      Please let me know if you have anymore questions!

    • Thanks! My second one is on the needles and is purple and green and white! Lovely! Are you making one?

  3. I love this pattern and am just completing my fourth shawl. For the one I’m knitting now I’m using a heavier sport weight yarn with the same number of stitches as the pattern calls for, which makes a larger shawl.

    • Carole I would love to see this one when it’s done! Have you stuck to the exact stitches on your other three?

    • Sorry, Jenny, I can’t do that. That’s not fair to the designer. I did notice the pattern is 25% off on Ravelry right now, if that helps! Good luck!
