Fall Foliage is called "kouyou" in Japanese and the kanji (Chinese characters) means red leaves. Kouyou is inspired by my favorite season, Fall. The leaves turn brilliant shades of reds, oranges and yellows and the brisk air makes it perfect weather for a cozy shawl. Knit from the center back to the bottom edge, Kouyou can be quickly knit up in either worsted or sport weight yarn to ward off the impending chilly weather.The shawl is designed to sit on your shoulders without slipping off. That's the way I wear it when I am sitting in front of the computer. Now that Fall has officially arrived in NYC, I am always cold. At Rhinebeck, I purchased a beautiful wooden shawl pin so that I can wrap the shawl around me when I am out and about. No matter how you choose to wear this shawl, it will be stunning.This 7 page pattern has both written and charted instructions. The shawl starts off with a simple stockinette section, then the lace portion and it ends with a bind off with picots. It also includes directions and pictures on how to block the shawl.
Yarn Requirements: There are 3 size options for the shawl: A (small), B (medium) and C (large). A: 420 yds/ 384 m of worsted weight, B: 450 yds/ 411 m of sport weight and C: 500 yds/ 458m of worsted weight.
The sample was made with 2 skeins of Malabrigo Yarn Merino Worsted in the color: Frank Ochre.
