Lavish Land; inspired by the ripe promise of season in full leaf, this shawl is sumptuously rich and luxurious. The fabric is given lush drape by triple plying; a technique which simultaneously maintains a shimmering airiness to your fabric. Yet all this splendour is achieved by working with one ball of yarn at time (instructions provided on how to achieve this trick), and stitch patterns that are simple and intuitive and knit up at speed

Sample is pretty large at 84.5in/215 cm wingspan with a maximum drop of 21. in/74cm as written. Easily resized; instructions are provided.

Yarn and yardage requirements:
I used Posh Yarns Miranda Heavy Lace (light fingering 70% Alpaca, 20% Silk, 10% Cashmere goat 594 meters / 100 grams) held triple. DK or worsted yarns could be used held single. Yarns with a majority natural fibre content are recommended.
