the name of this wrap started as a crasis between challenge and shawl - only after I discovered that “chal” is the Spanish name for… “shawl”!

whatever the name this stole is the perfect pattern for a quick accessory that with the right yarn may become a statement piece. it is also a fast last-minute gift for a knitworthy friend or relative or just a treat to yourself with that special, luscious, squishy or maybe a bit quirky stashed yarn.
totally customizable, and an open field for the most daring experiments, it will also bear a swift, sensuous and enjoyable knitting time.

due to the flexible construction, the customizable dimensions and the variable gauge, the suggested yardage is just an approximate reference.
the key for this piece is the drape as the result of the right yarn choice and the flawless gauge transition between needle sizes - further notes and a list of possible yarn substitutes inside the pattern.

this freebie is also a way to thank Ravelry for being the special place it is and it’s been for all these years: GRAZIE!
