Enjoy knitting easy garter stitch with soft colorful yarns in this top-down shawl. I held a strand of DK weight alpaca together with a strand of lace weight mohair for a luxuriously drapey fabric. Occasional yarn over rows form the crescent shawl shape while colorful stripes accentuate the curved lines. For an extra dramatic touch, attach fringe into each yarn over hole at the border and proceed to joyously dance and prance as your fringe blows in the wind.

Finished Measurements: 90” / 229cm wingspan, 18” / 46cm from CO to BO edge without fringe, 24” / 61cm from CO to BO edge with fringe. Measurements taken after blocking.

Yarn: DK weight held together with lace weight

Colors A, C & D represent 1 strand of Baby Alpaca DK held together with 1 strand of Silk Cloud Mohair.
Color B is 2 strands of Silk Cloud Mohair. You could also hold a strand of Baby Alpaca DK together with one strand of Silk Cloud mohair for color B, but it’s such a small accent stripe that it’s not necessary to buy two balls of yarn for this color.

Yardage: Yardage estimates are for the shawl without fringe.
