A Slice of Heaven to knit
A Slice of Heaven is an asymmetrical triangle shawl that is knit in two colors. Sections of garter stitch alternate with a sampler of 16 stitch patterns that are knit in a contrasting color.
Sorry about the photos. My shawl is so big that I couldn’t get a full photo of it that would do justice to the detail.
You’ll need two skeins of sock yarn in a main color and a contrast color (at least 400 yards of MC and 200 yards of CC). I discovered that I had used a nonstandard size 6 knitting needle (4.25 mm) after I was done knitting. You can use a size 6 needle for a slightly smaller shawl or use a size 7 needle for a similar size shawl though you may need a little more yarn.
The unused color is carried along the neckline in a new technique that also increases the stitch count. So there are only 4 ends to weave in when you are done with the shawl.
The pictured shawl measured 64” neckline x 15” deep. After blocking it grew to 75” neckline x 18” deep.
I’m in love with mine! I hope you decide to knit your own slice of heaven. :-)
