Inspired by arched cathedral ceilings, Dorado is the perfect shawl for those moments when it’s just a bit cooler than you might like. Each section of the shawl features a unique cable pattern, and the DK
weight yarn makes for a shawl that knits up quickly and is ideal for cool summer evenings or a crisp morning in early autumn.

Worked in a luxurious yak/silk/merino yarn, this shawl uses a half pi construction and organically flowing cables to drape smoothly around your shoulders. The i-cord edging is worked at the same time as the shawl body, providing a neat finished edge, and the cables in the body of the shawl flow seamlessly into k2, p2 ribbing to finish.

Finished measurement
Approximately 36.75 inches/93.5 cm wide and 19.25 inches/49 cm deep

The sample shown used almost all of two skeins, so if your stitch or row gauge are off even slightly, you may run out of yarn. Check gauge or have some extra yarn on hand (yardage requirements given do not include extra yarn for swatching).
