Gyllis is an architectural lace scarf knit length-wise. Choose a color of DK weight yarn held together with lace weight mohair silk for a fluffy fabric or knit a simple version with one strand of DK weight wool. Simple lace is worked in sections divided by different locations of increases that give the fabric a dramatic arched shape. The resulting shawl drapes effortlessly around the shoulders.

Finished Measurements
50” / 127cm along CO edge, 13” / 33cm from CO to BO edge. Measurements taken after blocking.

DK or worsted weight

You will need the recommended yardage for each strand of yarn if you are holding a strand of mohair together with your wool yarn.
