This is an asymmetric triangular shawl knit in worsted weight yarn. it’s warm and comforting. The shawl is a mix of smooth and textured panels that are bordered by horizontal braids.
Thanks to my wonderful test knitters for testing this shawl MrsSwan, blessedspeedy, Namma119, Kajumama

Yarn required:
550-675 m worsted weight yarn. I used Knitpicks swish worsted - colour squirrel heather The range reflects the amounts of yarn myself and my testers used on their project, so it does depend a little on your tension.
You need a solid or very close to solid colour to show off the beautiful stitch pattern and horizontal braids, although you could use different colours for the stocking st panel vs the pattern panels.

Skill level:
It is for an intermediate knitter and above, although most of the stitches are very simple, the horizontal braiding and daisy st require some confidence although they are not hard.

Finished size:
Width: 77”/195 cm, depth at point 20”/52 cm
