Never fading love is what we wish for,
Never fading love is what I wish for you,
“Never Fading” shawl is my Valentine gift.

Make the yarns fade instead ;)

Actually this shawl is also my Valentine gift for my Hubby, who creates really cool colors but doesn’t knit (good enough) to showcase them well. I went into his studio, grabbed three skeins and made the easiest shawl ever to show him how pretty his yarns are :)

If you’d like to use the same colors, or a different combo of ML Big Singles, head over here.

Size
One: approx. 125cm/50” wide and 60 cm/24” long at center spine.

Yarn
3 skeins of Big Singles by Martin’s Lab (80% merino, 20% nylon; 70m/77y per 100g). Shown in colorways Carousel (CC1), Candy Sparrow (CC2) and Prismatic (CC3).

Needles
8.0 mm/US #11 circular needle (80 cm/32” long).
9.0 mm/US #13 circular needle (for BO only).

Other
4 stitch markers, tapestry needle for weaving.

Gauge

The gauge isn’t crucial on this project, but differences will affect the finished size as well as the required yardage.
