With simplicity and understated beauty, Melodia is a much loved accessory you’ll want to knit more than once. The familiar combination of garter stitch and eyelets meets clean and simple minimalism with a touch of cosiness.

Melodia is knitted from the top down. Rhythmic eyelet sequences separated by horizontal garter stitch lines create a balanced look with a modern feel.

This shawl is a relaxing knit with plenty of garter stitch. Perfect for knit nights, travelling, or a knitflix binge. All you need is a single skein of gorgeous fingering weight yarn.

Approximately 400 m / 437 yds of fingering weight yarn.

This shawl is worked flat, but I recommend using 80-100 cm / 32-40 inch circular needles to accommodate the growing number of stitches.
