Let yourself be dazzled by this bright and shiny object! Mirasol Paqu Splash OR Queensland Sunshine Coast is striped with Araucania Alumco in this asymmetrical mesh shawl. Easy to knit, the shawl starts with just 2 stitches and quickly grows on the bias. Uses just one skein of each yarn; the yarns are carried up along the side for very few ends to weave in! Purchase additional yarn if you’d like yours larger; just keep knitting to your desired size.

Using the suggested yarns, you’ll achieve beautiful color variation along with contrasting textures. If substituting, I suggest using one shiny, sleek yarn with a fuzzy, softly textured second yarn.

Yarn A: Araucania Alumco, one skein (100 gr/215 yds)
Yarn B: Queensland Collection Sunshine Coast, one skein (100 gr/290 yds) OR Mirasol Paqu Splash, one skein (100 gr/329 yds)
US size 8 needle

Finished dimensions:
24 inches at deepest point x 64 inch span
