Party on my needles
A simple shawl with all my favorite things: garter stitch, some stripes, really easy lace and a fancy edging. This design is all about getting creative and having a good time knitting: play with leftovers, choose different stripe options and go crazy binding off with 3 different styles included.
Small: Approx. 66 inches (165 cm) from side to side and 13½ inches (33 cm) from top to bottom at deepest point (after blocking).
Large: Approx. 86 inches (215 cm) from side to side and 18 inches (45 cm) from top to bottom at deepest point (after blocking).
Shown in size Small. The larger option has the same body of the shawl and more stripes in the border.
Yarn requirements for size small (large). Approx. 750-800 (1050-1130) yards of fingering weight yarn in 3 different colors. You will need approx. 600 (800) yards in Main Color (MC), 100 (170) yards in Contrasting Color 1 (CC1) and 50-100 (80-160) yards in Contrasting Color 2 (CC2), depending the type of edging you choose.
