Yep, I had this on my bucket list for over 2 years when I bought my passap machine. It is a fee pattern by FoldiKnits. Here is the link.
I started this shawl and when I got to row 13 you reset your row counter to 0. Okay, so now I look at section 2 and I realize you have to knit that section 3 times! I did not realize that but I continued on thinking this is going to take forever. And yep, it did! When I did the second half of the scarf I got it down to a day and a half!. I know I have at least 25 to 40 hours in this project and I am quite proud that I stayed with it and finished. I like the idea of making each half and grafting the two together. The funny thing is what kept me going is that I wanted to see it. Of course, on the passap the work has to be down quite a bit to see it underneath. So I was really motivated. When it got longer I was in awe of the design. When I finished the first half I did not feel like ” Oh no, now I have to do it again.’ I knew what I was doing the second time and it was much faster. I typed up the helpful tips for you if you want to make this.
Go to her sight and download the pattern. Make several copies of the graph on page six and you will see what to do with them in my directions.
If you don’t want to spend that much of your life on one of these, I think just doing each of the sections 2 times would look nice also. What I like about this is the directions she has are clear. There is a mistake on page 3. The second transfer down should say transfer stitch to the right.
I do have another passap project on my bucket list but this is enough for me now. I need something easy. lol Actually this was easy but very time consuming. My hubby and friends wondered what happened to me since no one has heard from me. lol I call my knitting room my woman cave and after being in there day and night, my husband is calling me a cave dweller. 🙂
I enjoyed doing this and watching the snow coming down by the inch while I was at it.
