Jamila Shawl

Noro Silk Garden Light
DK (11 wpi) ?
21 stitches and 34 rows = 4 inches
in stockinette stitch
US 5 - 3.75 mm
1 size

This is a basic, striped rectangular shawl inspired by the traditional shawls worn by women in Afghanistan.

The sample uses 2 yarns (Rowanspun DK in dark blue and Noro Silk Garden Light) in alternating 18-row stripes of stockinette and reverse stockinette. The ends of the shawl are finished with a gently undulating garter ruffle. The ruffle adds weight to the ends, helping the shawl stay in place when worn.
