This top down semi-circle shawl begins with my favorite Westknits shortcut rows and yarn overs followed by two-color brioche ribbing, slipped stitches, stripes, and finally a beautiful chevron border. Choose 4 colors of yarn and enjoy the playful knitting journey!

Finished Measurements: 22” / 56cm from CO to BO, 70”/ 178cm wingspan length. Measurements taken after blocking.

I recommend Madelinetosh Tosh Merino Light or Hedgehog Fibres Sock. They are two of my favorite soft yarns for shawls and both are available at Stephen + Penelope.

You don’t need to be super exact about gauge as long as you like the knitted fabric with your chosen needle size. If your gauge is looser, you may need a bit more yardage for each color. If your gauge is tighter, you will probably use less than the recommended yardage.
