Mavka is an extra large rectangular shawl which features DROPPED STITCHES throughout, giving it an intentionally DISTRESSED look. The shawl is knit lengthwise in stockinette stitch; this will result in edges rolling slightly, adding to the rustic look.

I used 300 g of Purl Soho Linen Quill, 100g/430m (50% fine highland wool, 35% alpaca, and 15% linen). You can use any other fingering weight yarn, but highly recommend yarn with cotton/linen fibers.

40” circular needles US size 5 or 6 to get gauge

Gauge: 20 sts x 30 rows in 10x10 cm.

Size: 80” lentgh, 20” width.

Mavka: female spirit of the forest in Ukrainian mythology
