This easy to knit striped shawlette is worked completely in Garter stitch from the bottom point up. The stripes and colors of the shawl reminded me of the headdress of Tutankhamun, the boy king of Ancient Egypt.

It can be knit up entirely in one yarn weight or a combination of two, (such as Worsted and Fingering weights) as demonstrated by the shawl in the photos. I used Brooklyn Tweed Shelter yarn (Worsted weight) in Sap and Brooklyn Tweed Loft yarn (Fingering weight) in Cast Iron. It’s a great stash buster as pretty much any yarn goes. Have fun experimenting!

The finished shawlette measures approximately 32” across the top, 16” in height from the center point and 22” up its sides.
