Twymans Mill is a crescent-shaped shawl named after my grandparents' former home. It has a cape-like top edge and uses wrap-less short rows to mimic the lines of a millstone.

This shawl is worked side to side, and you'll never have more than 144 stitches on your needles at any given time. This pattern is great practice for short rows since it doesn't use any wraps and includes a row-by-row stitch count so you can make sure you're doing it right.

Use a solid and coordinating speckle as the pattern recommends OR go wild and switch colors of yarn each section! You can easily customize the length of this shawl by working more repeats of the pattern. As written, the finished size of the shawl is 70” long x 28” wide at its widest points.

For this wrap you'll need:
* 250-300 grams (1000-1200 yards) of fingering weight yarn
* Size US 4 (3.5mm) circular needles, 24-32” cord

This pattern is simple enough to be accomplished by an advanced beginner. **NOTE: you will need to aggressively block this shawl to open it up into its final shape, so if you hate blocking this may not be the pattern for you.**

Skills involved:
* knitting
* purling
* knit 2 together
* purl 2 together
* yarn over
* pick up and knit
* knit 2 together through back loop

Pattern is so cute! It is complicated with all the color changes but it came out looking great. I made one for a big advocate for Climate Change.
