The Mercado shawl is the one you grab on your way to the farmer’s market on weekends, or to the movies, or your favorite restaurant…

This asymmetric, bias-knit shawl is a joy to knit and to wear, and makes perfect use of a single skein of lovely fingering weight yarn. Because of the nature of the pattern, it could be knit in any weight of yarn, from lacy to bulky.

The pictured shawls were each knit on US6/4mm needles; the blue used madelinetosh merino light, and the striped one was knit in Knitting Fever Painted Desert.
