My inspiration:
Striped in white and charcoal and with lots of sequins, I designed this shawl inspired by the handwoven rugs and blankets of the North African Berber people.
Many Berber people call themselves imazighen (singular Amazigh),
meaning ”free people” or ”free and noble men”.

You will need following yarns:
M&K Fame trend paljett colour 683 white: 100 gr
Drops Alpaca colour 0506 charcoal: 100 gr
Drops Alpaca colour 3620 red: 50 gr or left overs
Small amounts of fingering yarns in lots of different colours to make the embroidered flowers.

Knitted as per pattern the shawl will measure abt 150 cm across and 75 cm from neck down. If you want to make your shawl larger you can add rows to the striped part or to the white part. Just make sure to add rows multiple with 4, as to match number of stitches in the bottom border pattern.
