This shawl combines simple stockinette with a touch of texture and a deep garter ruffle. It is knit from the top down and can be knit with a straight top edge or with curving ends. The size of the shawl will depend on the amount of yarn you have as you knit to a certain point with half of your yarn. The measurements given are for 4 balls (764 yards) of Felted Tweed at the specified gauge. Choosing not to knit the curved ends will give you a slightly deeper shawl with the same yardage. Yarn with some alpaca is recommended for drape. The textured band will show up better in a lighter color.
Yardage: Samples were knit with 764 yards of Felted Tweed (blue curved version) and 665 yards of sport weight alpaca (grey straight version), but you can easily make a smaller or larger shawl with less/more yardage.
Note: Felted Tweed is classified as a dk weight yarn, but many find it knits up more like sport weight.
