Kahden shawl / scarf is introducing unique stitch which is used to create its semi-lace pattern.
Shawl is knitted with double yarn with harmonious color pair from the tip of the triangle upwards, and thus it can be knitted as big as the yarn will last.

The texture is semi-lace and it’s rather quick to knit thanks to big needle size (6mm / 10 US)

The pattern includes chart and detailed written instructions.
