During Fall & Winter, I adore wrapping up in my biggest, squishiest shawls. The Honey Moss shawl combines squishy worsted weight wool with big honeycomb cables that transition into a magnified Horseshoe lace. Once finished it begs to be wrapped up in!

DETAILS
This shawl is knit sideways, increasing along one edge to create an asymmetrical shawl. The first half of the shawl is cables, which then give way to lace once we have built up a larger stitch count.

FINISHED MEASUREMENTS
Wingspan - 75”/190.5 cm
Depth - 43”/109 cm

YARN REQUIREMENTS
These are just approximations. Total yarn usage will depend on the yarn you use (fiber content, ply, etc.), your personal gauge, and any modifications you may make.
Worsted Weight Merino/Linen Blend
500 g/985 yds/900 m

SUGGESTED YARN
For this shawl I chose a merino yarn blended with linen for the warmth and softness of the merino and ultimate drape of the linen. This worsted weight yarn creates an incredibly squishy and generously sized shawl to wrap up in!
