size 6 US (4.25 mm). See Note 1.

Finished Size After blocking: 60 inches along top of triangle

1. You will use two differently sized needles to knit this shawl. On Right Side rows you will use the
larger needle to work the stitches off of the smaller needle. Then on the wrong side rows you will use
the smaller needle to work the stitches off of the larger needle. You can use two long straight
needles for this OR circular needles with interchangeable points, putting an 11 US (8 mm) on one
end of the cable and a 6 US (4.25 mm) on the other end of the cable. I used ChiaoGoo interchangeable needles, with the adapter. Interchangeable needles such as Knit Picks or Knitters Pride can be used also, without worrying about an adapter.
