Flight Delay Shawl


Big squares make for great wraps because there are so many ways to wear them. With the colour blocking on Flight Delay, you can wear it folded so the colours stripe vertically and show all 4 colours, folded so that two colours show per side and you have two looks, or folded as a rectangle and slanted colours showing.


I dreamed it up as my perfect travel knitting project. No matter what came at me, this project was always the right knitting. Jet lag? Conversations in my second language? Snatching a row here and there in the middle of a day of sightseeing? It’s simple and easy to pick up, and it’s more than enough knitting, no matter how long the flight delay!
