Based on a repeating wedge shape, Broken Trails is designed to take advantage of your special skein, no matter the length. For smaller skeins, the shape is a shallow, asymmetrical triangle, but as the number of wedges grows, the shawl tends toward a curving asymmetrical crescent shape. The wedge stays the same throughout the shawl, but because of the short row placement, creates a staggered pattern.

This shawl was designed and knit during my 2023 Special Skein KAL.

This shawl is one of two released to kick off my 2023 Special Skein KAL (31 August through 30 September)! I’ll be knitting a new shawl design up while everyone else is knitting up their own project. The third pattern will be released by the end of 2023 to complete the eBook collection.

My YouTube live of 31 August 2023 goes over Sobriquet and Globemallow. You can still access the recording any time.
