The interplay of two colours, mosaic knitting and colour blocking make this shawl an enjoyable and fun knit.
A fascinating effect of reversing the colours provides some extra interest.
This large and cosy shawl will keep you warm and add an eye-catching, elegant item to your wardrobe.

The mosaic motif is an easy to knit stitch pattern that is using slipped stitches and only one colour per row.

Emiliana is a triangular, sideways, bias knit shawl with a curved top edge.

The pattern contains fully written out as well as charted instructions (English and German version).

I hope you’ll enjoy the pattern!
