Ebb & Flow
Short Description: Like the rise and fall of the tides, the body and breath work together in constant motion. This ﬂuidity of breath and movement naturally leads to greater ﬂow of energy through the body and mind.
When it comes to self-care, millions of people rely on yoga—not only for relaxation, ﬂexibility, and general health, but also for self-reﬂection and self-actualization. Particularly in vinyasa yoga, the emphasis is on synchronized breathing with smooth transitions from one pose to another. Like the rise and fall of the tides, the body and breath work together in constant motion. This ﬂuidity of breath and movement naturally leads to greater ﬂow of energy through the body and mind. Ebb & Flow echoes that energy as it transitions from garter stitch to feather-and-fan lace and back again. The graceful crescent shape is worked top down in two coordinating colors; then, the applied lace border is worked sideways along the lower edge
Gauge: 20 sts and 48 rows = 4 in./10 cm in garter stitch with US 5 (3.75 mm) after blocking. Gauge is not crucial to this project, but varying gauges will aﬀect yardage and final measurements
Finished Measurements: One size: Wingspan: 66 in./168 cm; Depth: 21 in./53.5 cm
Materials Used: Yarn:
- C1: 280 - 360 yd./255 -330 m; C2: 420 - 505 yd./380 - 462 m. If you are a fairly loose knitter, a second skein for the C2 is recommended.
- Fiber Lily BFL Alpaca Fingering (50% Blue Faced Leicester, 50% Baby Alpaca; 100 g; 437 yd./400 m).
- 1 skein in Ebb (C1); 1 - 2 skeins in Flow (C2).
- This blend of yarn results in a soft fiber with a light halo and fuzz and has good memory
- US 5 (3.75 mm) 36 in./90 cm circular needle.
- A long circular needle is recommended in order to accommodate the large number of stitches as the shawl grows.
