Storm is a crescent-shaped shawl with dropped stitches that creates a light, airy and modern feel. A one-skein wonder, Storm uses just one skein of precious fingering weight yarn. It features dramatic dropped stitches and short rows that give this pattern a de-constructed look while also giving you a bigger shawl with the same yardage.
Approx. 64 inches (160 cm) from side to side and 15½“ inches (39 cm) from top to bottom at deepest point (after blocking).
This shawl is worked from the center top down. Stitches are increased at each side on every row to give it its characteristic crescent shape.

15.5 st and 32 rows to 4” (10cm) in garter st on US 7 (4.5 mm) needles after blocking.

When substituting yarn, compare the tension gauge of the pattern and the yarn. Working a tension square to determine the suitability of the yarn as a substitute is recommended - to compare the tension for sizing but also to test whether it creates the fabric you are after.
To determine the quantity needed, compare the total meterage needed in the pattern to the meterage on the substitute.
