Notes

knitting simple knit, but I had to frog the 3 stripe section 3 times, because I wasn’t happy with the edge looking

result a long shawl, which can be used in different ways. As my man said: this looks like really high quality, as if bought! :)

yarn this yarn is absolutely adorable! it’s so so soft & lightweight and it has this little touch of shine, which gives it a bit of a chic thing. I really love it!

a few thoughts…
increased with kfb instead of M1R and M1L

I tried a lot of different ways for the 3 color edge, but can’t find one, which I really like, so I decided to do it like this, because this was the easiest: knit first stitch with all 3 colors together, then drop the 2 and continue with the one needed

I did the 3 stripes short rows for a total of 10 times until I reached the edge

stretchy BO as follows: k2tog tbl and slip knitted stitch back on the left needle, repeat to end

there are a lot of good informations (for example how to wear this shawl) in the project from CabledSheep
