Version 2 is most up-to-date.

This shawl pattern is worked on the bias with a unique asymmetrical shape and mesh striping. It is surprisingly uncomplicated to knit up. Use two contrasting colors of Mad Hatter sport weight yarn, or one 6 oz cake of Mad Hatter Blossoms (color-morphing yarn).

Work the full pattern for a large shawl, or omit the last repeat for a shawlette.

The photo, at left, of the shawl laid out is the smaller version. Measuring approx. 50” (blocked) up the picot edge. The larger version has one more repeat of garter and mesh.

Tonal colors can be seen here.
Color-morphing cake colors are here.
