Boing! Mainsprings provide the principal impulse that drives motion and activity. This shawl is inspired by the clockwork rhythm and bounce of mainsprings.
This curved shawl alternates between wedge sections and straight sections. Short rows create pools of color and fabric. Each row uses one color at a time – no stranding! Slipped stitches and shorts rows do the heavy lifting in this design.
Mainspring 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 Cogwheel.
