This was the Octoberfest Mystery Shawl KAL that was a great success. It turned out so beautiful.
There are 2 options for the bottom edge of the shawl, a drop stitch ruffle or a rolled edge rib.

Size: This is a crescent shape shawl. 64” across top, 22” deep in middle.

3 Skeins Crazy Yarn (mill ends) from Stonehedge Fiber Mill, DK weight, 100% wool about 250yds each. My shawl when finished weighed 201 grams. I started with 240gms and had 40 left from my 3 skeins. The hanks of Crazy Yarn are not all equal. To be safe, if you are using a different yarn, 700-750 yards.

Size 8 (5.0mm) and 9 (5.5mm) circular needles 32” or longer.
Markers are optional

Gauge: about 19 stitches per 4 inches before blocking in stocking stitch. Don’t be too hard on yourself, it’s a shawl! “We don’t need no stinkin swatch!” If you choose to knit this shawl with a different weight yarn or change your needle size, you may need more or less yarn.

This is a crescent shape shawl started from the bottom and worked up.
