ELATION is all I would hope for in an easy knitting project: super squishy mohair Garter stitch that guarantees a mindless knit, a gradient that makes the knitting process fun and exciting and no purl stitches at all.

This shawl is not only a stunning statement piece but also a perfect project for a beginner knitter or someone who wants to switch knitting styles. You can practice your knit stitch and / or working with an even tension.

ELATION also is a great canvas for you to play with. You can either use the suggested yarn that creates a lovely gradient by itself or follow the instructions to create your own personal gradient made from as many colors as you like. In addition the length of ELATION can be adjusted very easily to your own preferences.

I hope you will like it just as much as I do! Happy knitting!

This pattern went through tech editing and test knitting.

I would love to see your ELATION shawl on Ravelry or on social media. It is always very exciting to see all your beautiful works. So I would be happy if you use this hashtag #elationshawl for the shawl and tag me @herbgarden.knitwear!

YARN
2 cakes of Rico Design Essentials Super Kid Mohair Loves Silk Colourlove (100g, 265m / 290 yards; 72% mohair, 28% silk) in colorway4843N (pink)

For the sample shown I used two entire cakes - no scraps left. If you would like to make a shawl that is larger, I’d recommend buying a third cake.

GAUGE
16 sts and 36 rows = 10cm / 4” in Garter stitch

Measured after washing without stretching the fabric.

For this project an exact gauge is not as crucial; you will still get a lovely shawl when your gauge is a few stitches or rows off. Yet gauge swatching is still recommended.

NEEDLES
4mm (or size to obtain gauge with)

TOOLS
A tapestry needle for weaving in the ends
