Leaf on the Wind

LEAVES AND CABLED SHAWL/SHAWLETTE


Wash: “I am a leaf on the wind, watch how I soar.”

Leaf on the Wind is the first in my Firefly/Serenity series based on the character Hoban Washburne (Wash). It has a unique seamless construction. It is initially knit in the round to make the center medallion, then partially bound off and worked flat, before the edging is knit on sideways.

If you are a fan of the show, the first design is based on Wash because he is awesome. It combines a leaf motif (from his quote “I am a leaf on the wind, watch how I soar”) and a modified version of cables from his super sweet cable knit sweater. If you are not a fan of the show (watch it – you’ll love it!!), it’s just a really pretty cable knit shawl with flowers and leaves and cabled braids/knots.

The second, third, and fourth designs are now available!
Big Damn Heroes based on Zoe, The Ambassador based on Inara, and Wasn’t Born a Shepherd based on Book.

Now also available on the Knit Picks IDP!
