Designed to use up all the yarn that’s left after knitting Chinotto, this fun simple shawl, that creates a very unusual shape working only on different increases, is the perfect companion for mindless knitting hours.

Sample is knit in:
Malabrigo Arroyo, 100% merino. MC: Natural, CC: Coffee Toffee

4 mm (US size 6), 120 cm / 47” circular needles, or size to obtain correct gauge
Tapestry needle to weave in ends
16 stitch markers (here are some I make)
Blocking wires and pins

19 sts and 31 rows over 10cm / 4” in stockinette stitch, severely wet blocked.
Gauge is not crucial for this project, but it will determine yarn usage and final measurements
