This shawl is all about texture, squish and the movement of color. Watching the colors move and change was mesmerizing, and I finished the shawl long before I was ready to, because I just could not set it down! I hope this shawl inspires you to grab some of your favorite yarns and mash them together in a shawl that begs to be wrapped around you! This shawl is knit from the top down using Brioche and Half-fishermen’s rib. It is very customizable for different yarn weights and to achieve different sizes.

Sample 1 (Pink): Wingspan: 78”/198 cm; Center Depth: 35”/89 cm
Sample 2 (Turquoise): Wingspan: 73”/185.5 cm; Center Depth: 34”/86.5 cm
This shawl is very adaptable to your size preference!

These are just approximations. Total yarn usage will depend on the yarn you use (fiber content, ply, etc.), your personal gauge, and any modifications you may make.

MC: Light Fingering or DK Weight (620-721 yds)
CC: Fingering or Sport Weight (600-700 yds)

Thanks to the flexibility of this pattern, you can play around with anything from light fingering to DK weight yarns! I recommend pairing one lighter weight yarn with one heavier weight yarn. I.E.: Sample 1 used light fingering (MC) with sport (CC) & Sample 2 used DK (MC) with sport (CC). YARDAGE WILL BE DEPENDENT ON HOW BIG YOU KNIT YOUR SHAWL.

This shawl was inspired by my handspun yarn! For the pink sample I paired a marled, 2-ply Cormo yarn with a bright and playful 2-ply yarn spun up from the Hedgehog Fibres Fibre Club. I love how the soft neutrals of the Cormo balance out the pops of color from the Fibre Club! I then knit up a second sample out of commercially available yarns. I had some amazing Cormo DK from Wing and A Prayer Farm that was a heavier weight than my handspun, but full of soft bounce! I paired it with Spincycle Yarns Dyed in the Wool, to give a similar look to the playful, shifting colors of my own handspun. The options are really endless for this shawl. I would choose anything from Fingering to DK weight and solids, marls, speckles, and variegated will all look amazing!

Sample 1 (Pink):
MC - Handspun Cormo (4.9 oz/141 g/721 yds) White and Taupe marl

Spinning notes are included in the pattern.
