What makes this shawl special is the opposition of the thicker yarn of the commanding ‘spines’ to the delicate nature of the ‘webs’ in between. This shallow triangle is started at the small end and grows with every set of spine and web. It’s your choice of the yarn combination, as long as your spine yarn is thicker than your web yarn. It’s also your choice as to the size. It can be done as a small kerchief or as a longer, more dramatic shawl.

Let’s talk gauge! The gauge is more about how you want the thinner yarn to relate to the thicker yarn. A special gauge swatch pattern is given in the instructions. Start with the prescribed needle, then decide if you like it or want to go up or down a size.
