The Merritt shawl is a bulky knit and boldly patterned throughout.
I happen to love bulky shawls as they feel like they are giving me a hug and frankly, who couldn’t use one of those.
This rectangular shawl is knitted sideways, starting out with a beautifully textured Hourglass motive, then moves into some stylish Pillars and finally ends with a Seeded Flag pattern.
It even has an added closure option, a couple of braids topped off with very cool oversized disk beads.

Measurements: 55” in length, 17” in height unblocked
This pattern can easily be knitted with a lighter weight yarn and smaller needle size. Simply add more length to your individual sections. Of course, more yarn will be needed.
