Both the Javelin pullover and the Javelin shawl are about strength and resilience. A sort of body armour, they were born during the most difficult time in the history of Ukraine and Europe.

Javelin is an old Celtic word, which means a light spear thrown in a competitive sport or used as a weapon. The textured ribbing used in this pattern does resemble little spears.

It is a crescent shaped shawl, that is knit top-down. The pattern comes with row by row written instructions, as well as charts for each section.

Size:
The pattern is written for one size with the finished wing span of ca. 208 cm (82 in) and depth of ca. 52 cm (20.5 in), which you can adjust by starting with the garter edge section whenever you feel like.
