Gabriel’s Wings

Gabriel’s Wings


A single ball of Noro Kureyon Sock Yarn (100g/422m)
32” 3.5mm circular needles

Finished Measurements:
40” wide and 24” high (blocked)

Unimportant for this project.

Pattern Notes:
This pattern is worked in stripes, using both ends of the ball of yarn, making the colour changes between the Garter and Stocking Stitch sections. You may wish to wind the ball into a yarn cake, or even (with the help of a digital scale) break the yarn into two, equal 50g balls.

CO 7 stitches.

Beginning section:
Row 1: K2, yo, k1, yo, k1 (mark this stitch as the Centre Stitch), yo, k1, yo, k2 (4 stitches added)
Row 2: (and all even rows in this section) K2, purl to last two stitches, k2 (no stitches added)
Row 3: (and all odd rows in this section) K2, yo, k to centre stitch, yo, k1, yo, k to last 2 stitches, yo, k2

Repeat Rows 2 and 3 three more times (nine rows in total).

Row 10: Eyelet row (ws) k2, (yo, p2tog) to one stitch before centre stitch, p3, (p2tog, yo) to last 2 stitches, k2 (no stitches added)

Garter Stitch Section:
Row 11: (and all odd rows in this section) K2, yo, k to centre stitch, yo, k1, yo, k to last 2 stitches, yo, k2
Row 12: (and all even rows in this section) K to centre stitch, p1, knit to end

Repeat rows 11 and 12 four more times.

Row 22: Eyelet row (same as before)
Row 23: (and all odd rows in this section) K2, yo, k to centre stitch, yo, k1, yo, k to last 2 stitches, yo, k2
Row 24: (and all even rows in this section) K2, purl to last two stitches, k2

Repeat rows 23 and 24 two more times

Row 29: (same as row 23)
Row 30: Eyelet row

Switch colours.

Knit, alternating Garter and Stocking Stitch Sections (and switching the yarn colours at the same time), until there is just enough yarn to bind off.

Cast off with Russian Bind Off (very stretchy), block and enjoy!


About Angela

My name is Angela. I am a 28 year old psych and criminology graduate, but I'd rather not diagnose you. I am a cuddle-slut. I can recite the entire script of The Princess Bride, (including accents) and believe that the meaning of life is contained within. Polyanna, commercials, and Oprah 'reunion shows' make me cry. I can whistle and hum at the same time, but I cannot touch my toes. I am an expert in both listening and talking. I look good in orange. I am a writer. I kick ass in Gin, Hearts, and Cribbage but I don't understand Canasta or Bridge. I can be heard singing Broadway numbers from my shower, and have dressed up as a viking princess, (complete with aluminum foil breast plate) The Phantom of the Opera, and a Ghostbuster for Hallowe'en. I have a bird named Bean. I have a brother named Adam. They are not related. I like vanilla body lotion, peanut butter, saunas, Jim Carrey, broccoli, pets,, Muppets, Kevin Smith, Corelle dishes, dry erase white-boards, Barenaked Ladies, Philosophy, the letter J, Harry Potter, picture frames, swimming, quilting, Michael Moore, genealogy, Raggedy Anne, tacky 50's tchotchke, 'Idiot's Complete Guide To' books, tweezers, feather pillows, polar dips, aquariums, Martin Luther King Jr., and Dr. Pepper. I don't like meat, gossips, cooked carrots, American Idol, mosquitoes, sweating, politics, public washrooms, tardiness, tuition, hunting, pat answers, pick up lines, brown bananas, cliches, pine scented air freshener, Kevin Costner, bacon, candied apples, pro-wrestling, humidity, and hypocrisy. Books I've read recently The Hitch Hiker's Guide to the Galaxy, The Dark Tower, When Nietzsche Wept, What's So Amazing About Grace?, Catcher in the Rye, Not Wanted On the Voyage, The Red Tent, The Little Prince, The Way the Crow Flies, Slaughterhouse-Five, The Poisonwood Bible, The Fall, The Knot of Vipers, Calculating God, The Chrysalids, Sick Puppy, Nineteen Eighty-Four, Franny and Zooey, The Brothers Karamazov, and jPod. I am slightly neurotic. No I'm not. Yes I am.

  3. I saw this as a project on Ravelry. Can’t wait to try it! It looks easy enough and with a nice looking finished product!

  4. What a lovely small shawl. Perhaps I;’ll make it forour vacation. But I neesd to know how to do the Russian Bind Off you include.

    Can you explain it?

    thanks you,

    • I can’t quite recall how the “real” Russian bind-off goes, but the one I use goes like this:

      K2, slip sts back on left needle, k2tog, k1, slip sts back on left needle, k2tog, etc.

      Hope that helps!

      Merry Christmas!
