Unlike many fingering weight shawls, this one is light and airy and would be an excellent choice to maximize a luxurious fiber blend. Beyond a traditional triangle pattern, this shawl adds a little extra width to balance the main stitch pattern’s vertical stretch. When worn open, the extra width falls into a natural vertical ruffle. Show off the stitch pattern, or bunch it up tight for compressed warmth as a scarf.

Ganache is part of the serialized e-Book Nourishing Knits, where it is paired with a recipe for Chocolate Almond Butter. Ganache is also available for purchase individually, without the recipe pairing.

Errata: For the edging, start by casting on 16 sts, not 18. An update will be released in the coming weeks.
