Fíonan Fey is a soft and fanciful semi-circle shawl created with brioche stitch in a feathery lace weight yarn, Debauchery. The tonal shifts and depth are created by the dimensional brioche stitches, finishing with an airy lace border. For a different look use two colors, maintaining the main color, contrast color, and edges throughout the shawl.

Finished Measurement: 30” radius - measurement taken after blocking.

Yarn: Lace Weight

Shown In: Debauchery by Spincycle Yarns with Royale (navy) for Color A, Greed (gold) for Color B, and Wrath (grey) for Color C.

Yarn Options:For a playful fantasy colorway, Hedgehog Fibres merino lace would be eye-catching and fun! Your needle size and gauge might change, so swatch and block to check how lace is opening up with them.

Yardage Used: Color A 490 yds, Color B 250 yds, Color C 250 yds when knitting with Debauchery, the design inspired yarn shown in photos.

Needles: US3/3.25mm circular needle with a 40”/101cm cord Note Make sure that you check your gauge and adjust your needle size as needed.

Notions: Tapestry Needle, 2 stitch markers

Gauge: One pattern repeat is 2” tall and 1.47” wide, blocked.
