Marigold is a V-shaped shawl inspired by crochet. It is made of 20 flower shaped pieces which are attached to each other as you go, on the bind-off round, using a variation of the centre double decrease. No sewing or crocheting is needed.

Working in the round, increases, decreases, picking up sts, long tail and backward loop cast on.
Wingspan: 140 cm/ 55 in
Depth: 36.5 cm/ 14.5 in
You can make the shawl larger or smaller by making more or fewer flower pieces.
(measured after blocking)
27 sts and 38 rows = 10 cm/ 4 in, with 3.5 mm needle(s) in stockinette st
one flower piece is 16 cm/ 6.25 in wide, measured across the centre from the edge of a petal to the edge of the opposite petal
Gauge is not crucial in this pattern, but a difference in gauge will affect yarn amount you will need.
2 skeins of Malabrigo Sock (100% merino wool, 400 m per 100 g, shown in Ochre) or similar fingering weight yarn. Use yarn that blocks well.
Needles and notions:
- one 3.5 mm (US size 4) circular needle 100 or 120 cm/ 40 or 47 in long
- one set of 3.5 mm (US size 4) DPNs
- 1 st marker
- yarn needle (for weaving in ends)
Take time to make a gauge swatch. Adjust needle size, if necessary.
