TIGER, TIGER Scarf & Shawl Knitting Pattern

The rhythmically flowing lines of this scarf and rectangular shawl are formed by an adaptation of the Tiger Eye pattern found in Barbara Walker's A Second Treasury of Knitting Patterns. Work one panel wide for the 7" x 68" scarf. Three panels, lengthened a bit, make a rectangular shawl approx. 19" x 90".

Because of the strongly directional nature of this pattern stitch, the scarf/shawl is worked in two pieces and grafted at the middle. The pattern stitch, given in charted format, requires blocking to show to best advantage and to keep the edges flat, so it is best worked in yarn with at least 80% natural fiber.

Skill level: Intermediate-Experienced lace knitting

Requires approximately 290 (1200) yds fingering/sock weight yarn.
