Strata Shawl KAL from 1st October 2016 to 31st October 2016 Find all the info you need to join the KAL in the What Shara Made Podcast group :-)
The Strata Shawl uses a combination of textured and lace stitches and is a deceptively easy pattern to knit. An adventurous beginner could happily make this shawl, and more experience knitters will enjoy this intuitive pattern. Stitch counts are given through out the pattern so you can easily keep track of your work.
-310-350m (340-380 yds) DK (or 8 ply) yarn
-5mm needles. An 80-100cm (32”-40”) circular will work well. Even though this shawl is knit flat in rows, using a circular needle will help accomodate the large amount of stitches.
-2 stitch markers
-Tapestry needle to weave in yarn ends
-Pins for blocking your shawl when it’s finished.
19sts x 32 rows per 10cm (4”) PRE blocking. While accurate gauge is not essential for this shawl, if your gauge is dramatically different your yarn requirements may differ. Take this into account. Also, your shawl will grow with blocking.
Finished Size, after blocking:
Approx 165cm (65”) wide and 46cm (18”) deep
