This pattern is for an extra large, showy shawl. Add colors to your heart’s delight, and don’t worry about mistakes. Instead - incorporate them into the knitting.

Knit upwards, starting with one yarn, adding one at a time, and ending with 7 yarns.
This version is mainly stranded.

Knitted with short rows for shaping, and garter st for the edge-stripes, and the upward bands.
Special effect: on WS rows, when knitting the upward garter bands, carry the yarn on the right side of the
knitting.

Size:approx. 77x26” 195x66cm”, depending on the yarns.
Size is easy to adjust by knitting less sts and less rows.

Materials:
1 st marker
Yarn: 7 med/worsted - bulky yarns, approx. 75/85m each.
• The key is to use novelty yarns, or any other yarns with special texture.
• Have a big variety of yarns, and alternate them. Example:
if you have 2 eye lash yarns, put a boucle or self striping yarn in between them for better effect.
• Don’t worry about running out of yarn. Instead, be adventurous, and substitute a different yarn whenever you run out. This will make the knitting and the shawl more intriguing.

Needles: US 15 / 10 mm

Gauge: approx. 8 sts X 12 r = 4”/10cm (varies with the different yarns).
Using different kinds of yarn makes the gauge more an average than an exact number.

Skill level: intermediate. Pattern includes mix of st.st and garter, inc, stranding, intarsia, and short rows.
