Appletini was my first ever MKAL!
This shawl is inspired by my most popular pattern Dirty Martini.

Finished measurement: 67 inches/170 cm wingspan; 36 inches/91.5 cm along BO edge (after blocking).
Measurements are approximate because garter stitch stretches quite a lot.

Yarn: approx. 500 yards/460 meters of heavy DK/Worsted weight yarn in total.
The original version is worked in 2 colours, but you can mix and match many colours in each section following the stash busting version!

Original version (2 colours):
Colour A: 250 yards/230 meters;
Colour B: 250 yards/230 meters.
Please note: I used exactly 2 skeins of Malabrigo Rios (they were a bit oversized: approx. 110 grams each) for my Appletini, if you are planning to make changes to the pattern, you may need more yardage in both colours.

Stash busting version (3 or more colours):
Colour A: approx. 100 yards/92 meters;
Colour B: approx. 250 yards/230 meters;
Colour C (or various leftovers): approx. 150 yards/140 meters.
