Yarn details

The shawl is worked in 2 sections: a parallelogram in colors A & B, turned 90 degrees and picked up to work a curl with C & D.

The parallelogram is a great opportunity to use gradient or long-repeat striping yarns. Or the whole shawl can be done in any number of yarns, striping at will.

Fingering weight yarn in four colors; amounts are generous so you will have enough.
A: 100 grams/about 400 yards/365 m
B: 50 gr/about 200 yds/183 m
C: 50 gr/about 200 yds/183 m
D: 100 gr/about 400 yds/365 m

Sample shown
A: Blue Moon Fiber Arts STR medium in Lenore (purple)
B: Blue Moon Fiber Arts STR medium Rare Gem (orange)
C: Madeline Tosh Twist Light in Neon Peach
D: Viking of Norway Mini Raggen #562 (pink/gray patterning)
