Bicoloured Rooster is a shawl in the shape of a right angle equal sided triangle of 100 x 200 cm (altitude x hypothenuse) in the lace weight version or 95 x 190 cm in the DK weight version. Instructions for a smaller version will be given.
It is all over featuring stockinette slip stitch patterns (mosaic) from Barbara Walker’s “Treasuries”.
The shawl is worked in two colours. Be sure to have enough contrast between the chosen colours for the mosaic designs to arise effectively.
This pattern is appropriate for knitters with some experience with slip stitch patterns as well as basic knitting knowledge of k, p, m1r, kfb.
The instructions are written in detail and also contain charts for each section of the project.

Many thanks to the testers for their wonderful knits:
