Marlanna is the perfect shawl to take you from Spring into Summer or from Fall into Winter. It is a crescent-shaped shawl knit from the top down. The garter stitch body and stranded border are the perfect canvas to highlight the colors in variegated yarns. This shawl can be knit with one skein of fingering weight yarn - a perfect project to use that special skein you’ve been saving in your stash! If you have more yarn, make it larger! Instructions on changing the size of the shawl are included.

Both charted and full written instructions are included.
