If Crocodile Dundee was the type to wear shawls, it would probably be this one. The overlapping decreases in the lace stitch create a scale like quality in the fabric and pair it up with an eccentric, hand-dyed yarn, you find yourself with a Nakahi (Maori for snake). The lace pattern is easy to memorize, making for a great relaxing and mindless knit. This is also a quick knit due to decreases used to form the wedges, so the stitch count never gets overwhelming and you’ll find that the rows just fly by. The Nakahi Shawl makes for a perfect accessory for those who love working with variegated, stippled or other eccentric color-ways.

Needle: US size 6 (4mm), 40” (80mm) circular needle. A long circular needle is recommended in order to accommodate the large number of stitches.
Yarns Used: The Yarns of Richard Devrieze Pepping (Fingering / 4 Ply ; 100% Merino ; 225 yards / 65 grams). 2 skeins were used in the color way “Visions of Paradise”.
Yardage: 410-450 yards / 370 - 410 meters.
Gauge: 18 sts and 28 rows over 4”/10cm. Gauge is not crucial to this project but varying gauges will effect final measurements and yardage.
Other Notions: Stitch markers, darning needle.
Final Measurements: 68” / 172 cm length, 28” / 70 cm at bind-off edge. Measurements will vary based on differing gauges and is easily adjustable.
