Ating wraps around your shoulders like a cosy hug. The generously sized triangle wrap by Inese Sang knitted with our Big Merino Hug keeps you comfortably warm no matter which wearing option you decide on. Our Moods colour Red Beech, and the big diamond lace pattern along the lower edge almost make Ating a statement piece. The pattern is also great for taking your first steps into knitting more advanced motifs. The accentuated centre line and the subtle rib stitch give Ating a structured look and bring variety to the knitting of the main part.
You start Ating with a garter tab cast-on at the top centre. Even increases along the wingspan and on both sides of the centre line give the shawl its triangular shape. The beautiful large scale diamond lace pattern along the hem provides plenty of knitting interest for advanced knitters and will give beginners a chance to improve their shawl knitting skills. The instructions are both written and charted. The garter stitch edging along the top of the triangle wrap makes for a neat finish.
The finished shawl is approx. 200 cm (79 in) wide and 85 cm (33.5 in) from top to bottom after blocking.

Knitting techniques used:
Ating was designed for our 2021 collection, to which Rosy gave the theme of touch. This year, we have all become particularly aware of the importance of interpersonal closeness and touch. More and more, however, it is also becoming clear that we belong together worldwide and that what happens on the other side of the globe also touches us. The names of our patterns express this in different languages. The name Ating derives from Romanian and means I touch.
