grey orlane
textured shawl recipe by orlane
Needle and yarn
US 11 - 8.0 mm
Queensland Collection Kathmandu Chunky
383.4 yards in stash
2.3 skeins = 326.6 yards (298.6 meters), 230 grams

I love my little textured neckerchief and wanted a bigger, warmer, even more rustic version. So I used (some of) the yarn left over from my Walpole.

For this one, instead of alternating textured stripes, I just did one big patch of stockinette, then a big patch of the texture, then the big garter edge.

Finished size, after blocking, is 54 inches wide and 25 inches tall.
