Witch's Garden

Roundup: Through the Witch’s Garden

Witch's GardenThrough the Witch’s Garden was inspired by a few variables.

I adore all things witchy, which certainly includes listening to Steve Nicks of Fleetwood Mac while dancing around my century-old witchy house. Yes, I’m totally that girl behind closed doors lol.

My favorite color, purple, is also considered a very witchy color.

You stroll through intricate floral motifs while knitting this generously sized shawl. Through the Witch’s Garden is an engaging top-down half-pi shaped shawl that increases in stitch count six times throughout the shawl, giving the shawl its classic half-pi shape.

Worked flat, Through the Witch’s Garden contains written directions and charts. A handy-dandy progress tracker is included to help you with your rows and stitch counts. Yardage for each section is given should you wish to turn this into a scrappy project!

Yarn Used

Through the Witch’s Garden was a collaboration with the ever-talented Shelly of Log House Cottage, using her wonderful Kid Lux Smooth base. This gorgeous yarn is 60% Merino 25% Mohair 15% Nylon, which lends incredibly well to the lace created in this shawl. The stitch definition is there, with the addition of a lovely halo caused by the mohair. There’s a whopping 825 yds (754 m)/ 4.05 oz (115 g) in a single skein, which I used held double while knitting the sample for this shawl.

Frequently asked Questions

How much yarn would I need for extra repeats in section 5?

Fingering weight held single: 210 yds (192 m) for each additional repeat of rows 31-54.

Lace weight held double: 420 yds (384 m) for each additional repeat of rows 31-54.

Could this be done in lace weight held single?

Absolutely! You’ll have to adjust the needle size to get the fabric you desire, and possibly do more repeats of the last bit to get your shawl to be the same size.

Can I use stitch markers between the repeats?

You can. However, you will need to adjust them on certain rows to accommodate the sl1-k2tog-psso and sl2-k1-p2sso positions. These rows include;
Section 4 — Rows 22, 30, 38, 46
Section 5 — Rows 8, 16, 30, 50
