DOTTED RAYS by Stephen West is an arched shawl that begins at the center with just a few stitches and expands quickly with yarn over increases. Garter stitch short row wedges add length to one side forming rays that gradually increase in size. The repetitive knit stitches and rhythmic short rows are easy to work while still keeping your interest. Built in I-cord edges and an I-cord bind off outline the entire shape for a clean finish.

Our version (shown above) used our Grace yarn paired with a strand of lace weight mohair/silk. Following directions for the SMALL version with larger than recommended needles (we recommend 4.5 - 5 mm / US 7-8 - to accommodate addition of the strand of mohair/silk) we achieved a generously sized shawl somewhere between the dimensions of the Small and Large size in the pattern.
