About the Magnitude Shawl:
Magnitude Shawl is inspired by a strike of lightning illuminating the night sky. Wrap yourself in its inviting arms to carry some of that fire energy with you.
The shawl is knitted as a large triangle worked from the bottom up, starting at the tip, with increases every other row on each side. An i-cord is worked on each side and at the end for a nice clean edge.
The central pattern is made of cables over a purl and moss stitch background. The rest of the shawl is worked in stockinette stitch.
Suggested needle: US 6 / 4 mm circular needle with a long cable or size to obtain gauge
Finished dimensions: wingspan 60.75’’ / 154.5 cm / height 37.5 ‘‘ / 95.5 cm
Please note that colors will vary between computer-phone-tablet monitors and dye baths, and though we try our best to post color-accurate photos, variations should be anticipated. For any questions or concerns about color exactness, please contact us!
Natural dyes fade beautifully with time and may run a bit when washed but will retain their vibrancy with proper care. We recommend hand washing in cold water with a drop of pH neutral detergent and laying flat to dry away from direct sunlight.
Why pH neutral detergent?
Most commercial, even all natural detergents, are acidic or alkaline solutions that could alter naturally dyed colors. For example, we use citric acid or lime juice as a modifier to dye bright reds with cochineal. An acidic (or alkaline) detergent can have a similar result, breaking down dyes and changing colors even in the first wash.
