Pluma is a fun seamless shawl worked bottom-up in a modular fashion. It starts with one module and for all the others, stitches are picked and/or casted-on as you knit. Take your time choosing a special yarn - it might be rustic, hand-spun, variegated or simply a different color scheme to truly make the shawl your own.

This pattern is easily customized by working more or less modules. As shown has 28 modules and 8 half-modules. It uses three colors of Beiroa (worsted weight yarn): 185.6 yards (169.7m) of color 688 (blue); 136.5 yards (124.8m) of color 685 (gray) and 163.8 yards (149.8m) of undyed yarn.
