This top down shawl features a diagonal ribbed texture that zigs and zags while the sections increase in size. Yarn over holes decorate the fabric and a picot bind off neatly finishes the edge. Three skeins of Hedgehog Fibres Merino DK yield the large semi-circular shape. Two skeins of fingering weight yarn like Hedgehog Fibres Sock would also make a lovely fabric.
