Delightful is a shawl for concentration and meditation – but mostly for relaxation. The initial lace panel requires your full attention and will help you to let go of negative thoughts and stress. Once the lace is finished the rest of the shawl is just knits and purls which will give you the flow to relax and a peaceful state of mind.

Yarn: Merino d’Arles (50 g = 200 m) or any other wool yarn with matching gauge. The shawl pictured is knit up in colorway Mistral.
Merino d’Arles is a cosy fluffy yarn, with the right woolly feel but still soft against your neck. This yarn GOTS-certified and completely produced in Europe with French Merino.

How much yarn needed? 4 skeins á 50 g, for sample 160 g/640 meters were used

Needles: circular needle 3,5 mm and 60-80 cm (and optional cable needle)

Gauge (after blockning): 26 stitches and 34 rows is 10x10 cm

Size: One size, 196 cm from left to right tip and 60 cm from edge top to bottom tip
