This heart shaped shawl is knit in garter stitch and finished with a sophisticated picot bind-off.

While the original shawl was knit with three contrasting colors, the simplicity of the design accentuates your color palette, allowing for infinite choices.

Yarn: 3 x 50 g of Fingering weight (50 g / 248 yds). Original was knitted with The Farmer’s Daughter Fibers Soka’pii, but feel free to use any fingering weight yarn you wish.

Gauge: 17 sts x 34 rows in garter stitch after blocking with US 5 needles.

Techniques used: make 1 left/right increases, picot bind-off, knitted (cable) cast-on.

Sept 23 - Updated the pattern to include instructions for Mini Kombu - a shawlette that requires only 75 g of fingering weight yarn, I used 3 x 25 g of mYak light fingering Baby Yak Organic Cotton (25 g / 127 yds). Pattern updated with row/stitch count and photos of Mini Kombu.
