Named for the expressive traditional flat woven kilims of Anatolia which often use colorful yarn remnants in playful combinations, Kilim Shawl combines two of my favorite stitches in a textured stashbusting wrap, and a nod to our crafting neighbors to the north with a braided trim that reminds me of similar edgings on Anatolian saddle bags and socks.
Long herringbone self-striping side panels are worked flat and edged with Latvian braid trim and a linen stitch band, then picked up and knit together while working the center panel. The entire rectangular shawl is then banded in the round, and trimmed working flat. Panels are easily adaptable to make a longer or wider shawl by adding more rows or stitches to the panels, or additional panels.
The shawl shown here was made with three partial Uneek Fingering colorways plus one entire Monokrom colorway, but endless combinations are possible as long as there is enough yarn.

Materials:
MC1, MC2 (MC3 optional): 2 full skeins or 3 partial
skeins of Uneek Fingering
CC: 1 skein Monokrom Fingering
