“Since the dawn of time, storytellers have enchanted audiences with their words. But there is an even rarer gift. There are those, who by reading out loud, can bring characters to life. Out of books and into our world. Most of these Silvertongues, as they are know prefer to keep their skills a secret but some do not even know this gift is theirs, until it is too late. “ ~Inkheart (film introduction)
Knitting this shawl is like telling a story with yarn. You are the Silvertongue of this story - as you knit, the story of your shawl will come out of the pattern, and into reality. Follow the pattern, or substitute textures and colors at will - you are in control.
Silvertongue is a top down, textured, lace, and cabled shawl. All the sections are the same length and, thus, are interchangeable. Don’t want to knit cables? Don’t! Want more lace? Add it!
Just remember that if you change up the sections, some stitches (like Garter, that yarn hog!) eat up more yarn than others.
