Thanos Theory Shawl - PDF Knitting Pattern
A fingering weight single-skein hand knit crescent shaped shawl with a simple lacework center panel and a picot bind off edge.
There are many theories linking the name THANOS to that of the Infinity Stones in the Marvel-verse. My favorite: Tesseract (Space Stone), Head of Vision (Mind Stone), Aether (Reality Stone), Necklace of Agamotto (Time Stone), Orb (Power Stone), Sacrifice (Soul Stone). Whatever your theory, this shawl is my interpretation of all the pieces of the Thanos puzzle coming together in Infinity Wars!
Apple Tree Knits Copper Sock (sock weight; 88% superwash merino wool, 12% copper-infused nylon; 435 yds / 397 m per 3.5 oz / 100g), 1 skein: ‘Infinity Wars Gradient’
US 7 (4.5 mm) 40” / 81 cm circular needle
Stitch markers (2)
Blocking wires and/or T-pins
48” / 122 cm wingspan, 13½” / 34.5 cm depth, after blocking
21 sts and 32 rows = 4” / 10 cm over stockinette stitch, worked flat, taken after blocking
This shawlette is worked from the top-center, out. The cast-on is a double-overhand knot (tutorial provided) and the final bind-off is worked as a picot edge.
Adjust needle size as necessary to match gauge.
Written and charted instructions are provided for the body of the shawl.
Please note that this shawl is designed to use up almost all of one skein. A gauge different than that noted may result in the use of more yardage. I recommend doing an un-blocked swatch and aiming for a gauge of 25 sts and 34 rows over 4” / 10 cm to ensure you won’t run out of yarn. You can then unravel your unblocked swatch and cast-on once you have achieved this pre-blocked gauge.
