The shawl is named after its first recipient, my brother Josu. He is a very creative guy, a very talented photographer, and I didn’t want a simple scarf so I gathered a lot of aran yarn for a huge shawl and this is the result.

The shawl can be knitted with any yarn weight, you just need 4 different colors. Heike (Fassadenzauber) helped with the test-knitting in the fingering version. You can find this version after the Worsted pattern.

Thanks to all my test-knitters! You are all amazing.
