Tansy represents my newfound calmness. Not needing chaotic lace to escape in, just a mindless rhythmic knit that I could easily work on without the pattern after a few repeats. There’s a sort of peacefulness in such a knit, which is quite new to me as I usually desire highly engaging knits.

Tansy, a one-skein triangular-shaped shawl worked on the bias, has easy to remember repeats that make this a very quick knit. This shawl is easy to modify if you’d like to use more skeins to make a bigger shawl (Notes with how to do so are included!). The simply eyelets of this one-skein wonder will work perfectly with solids, semi-solids, speckles, and variegated yarns, utilizing that one of a kind skein that may be lingering in your stash! As a one-skein project, this shawl works up quickly – ideal for last-minute gift-giving.

Worked flat, Tansy contains written directions, charts, and is broken down into comprehensive sections. The pattern includes detailed instructions for the techniques used and a handy-dandy progress tracker to help you keep track of your row and stitch counts.


Tansy is available on English
