Muscari is a lacy and airy shawl, knitted sideways seamlessly in a fun to knit broomstick pattern. This shawl is a great beginner project and a nice relaxing project for the experienced knitters. It only takes one skein to knit this shawl, which makes for a fast project.

Finished Size
The sample shawl in the photographs after blocking measures 165 cm (65 inches) for the straight edge on the top of the shawl and 40 cm (16 inches) for the height of the shawl at the center. You can easily make it bigger or smaller.

The gauge in lace pattern after blocking measures 15 sts x 16 rows in 10 cm x 10 cm. The gauge is not critical in knitting this shawl. Adjust your needle size to suit your yarn and achieve the size and the look of the scarf of your choice.

1 skein of Aspen by Baah! (Sport / 5 ply 75% Merino, 15% Silk, 10% Cashmere/ 330 yards / 100 grams) in colorway Misty.

US 4-3.5 mm needles

Many thanks to Helin (helin12) for test knitting this shawl for me.

The striped shawl in photographs is a prototype shawl I made. It features 2 colors and has a slightly different border than the final version of this pattern. The final pattern version can be done in two colors if desired.
