Click! Clack! Kerchunk! Cogwheels mesh to transmit torque. Rotational simple machines inspire this design.
This crescent shawl begins with the toothed edging, worked sideways. Two-color garter stitch alternates with lace wheels, all worked as you go. The body is worked from picked-up stitches, creating the crescent shape with gentle decreases. Slipped stitches continue the look of the edging, providing interest for the knitter and support for the shawl.
The edging is charted — full written directions for all charts are included in the pattern. The body has written directions only (no chart needed).
Cogwheel is part of the Clockwork Collection. Each of three shawls in the collection can be made with two 100-gram skeins of fingering weight yarn. Look for Flywheel and “Mainspring.”
