Anywhere, Conversing, and Careful
This pattern booklet has three patterns in it: Anywhere, Conversing, and Careful. All three are different reversible textured shawls made with sequence knitting, and designed by the inventor of Sequence Knitting - Cecelia Campochiaro. They are intended to be social knitting or travel knitting (read - you don't have to pay too much attention because it is an easy stitch repeat), and they just might be the easiest sequence knitting shawls you can make. Make them your own with your choice of yarns and colors.
Anywhere and Conversing are tip-up triangles, and Careful is a wedge-shaped shawl worked from the back-neck out. All three can be worked at any gauge and in any yarn - you choose. Anywhere and Conversing can be made in a range of sizes from small scarves to big shawls, while Careful is best made as a big shawl so that it stays on the shoulders and envelops your body.
Anywhere is a 1-row pattern; Conversing is a 4-row pattern; and Careful is a completely different shape - three fused triangles in a 4-row pattern.
Our model is in the Anywhere shawl in the 65 in size knit with BC Garn Summer in Kashmir, color F11. We used 4 balls of yarn.

Because you can use any weight of yarn and will use the measurements of the shawl to decide when you are done, you don't need to worry about gauge! Just pick your yarn, and needles that will give you a nice drape for the shawl you choose. Want help? Get in touch - we can help you figure it out.
