Broadwyn
Broadwyn is an asymmetrical triangle knit from the short end, with decreases on one side & a lace panel on the other to make a long scarf-like shawl. With i-cord all around (an i-cord cast on, then inline i-cord edging), it is a modern & dynamic addition to any wardrobe, no matter how you drape it. Throw it on, toss the end around, and enjoy! I’ve also posted an I-cord Cast-On tutorial to support this pattern. You can check it out here in my YouTube Channel

    Is there a mistake in the gauge and/or needle size? I made a couple of swatches, and went from American size 4 to size 6, but I’m still getting 25 stitches per 4 inches. It seems to make too loose a weave if I go bigger than 6, but I’m afraid the shawl is going to end up too short and narrow. Do you have any information or suggestions?

    Hi Kelly, the gauge and needle size are correct. What yarn are you using? Also, have you washed and blocked your swatch? The design is meant to be open and a bit drapey. The single ply yarn (although it is fingering weight) tends to fluff up and fill the extra space in a bit. Your mileage may vary if you are substituting yarns, but definitely wash and block your swatches to see if you can get the correct gauge. If not, it is a shawl. You can knit it to be any size you want. If you don’t like the drapier open fabric you can go with a denser gauge and still get a shawl, just a smaller one.

    How much yarn is left over, the hank I am looking at is 420 yrds, do I really need to buy 3 or will 840 yards be enough??

    Everyone’s yardage use is different, so I would maybe take a repeat out of the cast on to be sure you don’t run out right at the tip. So instead of casting on 119 sts total with the i-cord cast on, I would say do 116. That’s 3 sts fewer, which will equate to one fewer repeat of Chart 1. If you usually use more yarn than the recommended yardage, you might want to go with 6 sts fewer in the cast on and 2 repeats of Chart 1 subtracted.

    kf&b is an increase where you use the front and the back loop of a single stitch. There’s a tutorial video for it here: https://youtu.be/ILcTB5hc0XM

    p2togtbl is a decrease that twists the stitches shut and leans left. There’s a video here: https://youtu.be/aLI4_u3T9Fo

    YouTube and google are your friends 😀

    Can I do this on circular needles but knit flat? Or do you suggest a straight needle when doing an I cord?

    You can! In fact, that’s how I do all flat knitting and how I did this one.
