Constructed of knitted, fan-shaped motifs to form a scalloped, triangular shawl. A lovely drape to this fan stitch shawl when knit in Panda Silk DK - a blend of bamboo, superwash Merino wool and combed silk. Cozy and eye-catching in our new Nocturne DK yarn--wonderful!

The luster of the yarn shows off beautifully in the sculpted fan modules.

This model took exactly 6 balls, but to be safe, we are suggesting 7 balls of the Panda Silk DK or 6 skeins of the Nocturne DK. Note that the Panda Silk DK uses needles size 6 for the body, size 5 for the edging) and the Nocturne uses 8 for the body and 7 for the edging, which gives a slightly different size.

We’d love to see photos in other colors - please post them!
