This semi-circle shawlette was designed with yarns that are reminiscent of a flight of chocolate. A sampling of some of our favorites including milk and dark chocolate, sea salt caramel, white chocolate, raspberry and straight up caramel, knit up in alternating motifs including a little lace work and a picot bind off. The two Ewe love all things chocolate and we hope you have as much fun knitting the project, as we did putting it together!
The colors can be worked in any order that is pleasing to the eye – from dark to light, vice versa, or any order you choose.

MATERIALS:
• 6 x 20g hanks of Olive & Two Ewe Alcott, a fingering weight yarn, for a total of 540 yards.
• Size US 6 / 4 mm circular needles (14” and 30” length)
• 5+ progress keepers are helpful to place at regular intervals once the stitch count grows larger to help with counting

GAUGE:
23 sts & 30 rows = 4 in/10 cm worked over stockinette stitch, unblocked
A note about gauge: The first section of the shawl does not use as much yarn as the other sections, so your swatch should be knit from this color. Gauge does matter in this shawl. Each section has been designed with a certain number of rows, meant to end when that color is almost finished. If you know that you are a loose knitter, but find gauge swatching contemptuous, you might simply go down a needle size, or more advanced knitters can determine how to remove needed rows off affected sections where they find themselves running short, without losing the integrity of the design.
