The Javelin Shawl Kit

Both Javelin pullover and Javelin shawl are about strength and resilience. A sort of body armour, they were born during the most difficult time in the history of Ukraine and Europe.
Javelin is an old Celtic word, which means a light spear thrown in a competitive sport or used as a weapon. The textured ribbing used in this pattern does resemble little spears.
It is a crescent shaped shawl that is knit top-down. The pattern comes with row by row written instructions, as well as charts for each section.  Pattern can be bought separately here and you can pick your favorite colorway on our DK/Worsted untreated Highland DK base from our drop down list or you can pick the base of your choice over in our semi-solid dyed to order section.
