Kalmer (pronounced CALL-mer) is ideal to showcase yarns that are highly variegated, limited in yardage, or both. Shown in luxurious cashmere worsted, this shawl can be worked to any size and will shine with any yarn weight and fiber. The firm, non-rolling linen stitch and carefully thought-out bind-off result in a very balanced, knitted material that lies flat and might just puzzle any weavers that you know…

This wide, triangular scarf is knit from the tip up, with increases at the beginning and end of every row. Variegated yarns will be flattered, as will almost any weight and fiber content. Be sure to swatch to ensure that you like your knitted fabric; try going up two to four needle sizes from what is suggested for your yarn. I’ve listed my gauge in stockinette & pattern to give you an idea of how much the stitch pattern will draw in.
