The annual Edinburg Yarn Festival shawl.

The shawl begins at the top center and is worked outwards to the border. The main body of the shawl is worked in various stitch patterns with a 3-stitch Garter border along both edges. Each section is worked in one or two contrasting colors, creating a visually pleasing effect. A simple two-color brioche border forms the bottom edge of the shawl.

approx. 165 cm/65” wide and 75 cm/30” long at center spine.

3 skeins of Martin’s Lab Comfy Merino (100% merino; 400m/439y per 100g) or any other fingering weight yarn which gives you the correct gauge.
Shown in colorways: Coal Mine (CC1), Astral (CC2) and Prismatic (CC3), 1 skein each.

3.5mm/US #4 circular needle (100 cm/40” long).

2 stitch markers, tapestry needle for weaving, blocking pins.

The gauge isn’t crucial on this project, but differences will affect the finished size as well as the required yardage.
