Looking for texture and warmth? This cosy DK weight wrap offers both. Alchemy explores the open star stitch using two colours. It creates a rich texture and is a fun way to play with colours.

You only use one colour at a time, so it’s easy and entertaining to knit. Seed stitch frames on both ends enhance the cosy look.

YARN
Two colours of Frida Fuchs Wonneproppen DK (100% merino wool; 250 m / 273 yds per 100 g). Two skeins of C1 (shown in Mönchspfeffer) and one skein of C2 (shown in Vanilleschote).

Or similar DK weight yarn.

AMOUNT OF YARN
Colour 1 (C1): 433 m / 473 yds
Colour 2 (C2): 243 m / 265 yds

NEEDLES
Size 4.5 mm / US 7 circular needle. Adjust needle size to obtain pattern gauge.

This shawl is worked flat but I recommend using an 80-100 cm / 32-40 inch circular needle to accommodate the growing number of stitches.

FINISHED SIZE After blocking
183 cm / 72 in (width) x 81 cm / 32 in (depth)
