This pattern can be found in my 2016 book Double or Nothing: Reversible Knitting for the Adventurous.

As with my last book, I’m ending this book with a magnum opus -- a large pattern that uses a bunch of new techniques and doesn’t shy away from really interesting construction in favor of ease of execution. This is not an easy pattern, but if you’re an experienced and adventurous double-knitter, it’s worth it.

This shawl uses double-knit lace and colorwork, a fascinating modification of the garter tab, and more. It’s 7.5 feet wide when blocked and since it’s done in pure alpaca, it’s incredibly cozy.

After blocking, this shawl is approximately 7.5’ wide by 3.75’ tall and uses 11.23 oz of each color; since you’ll have 16 oz of each you’ll be fine.
