Are you looking for the perfect meditation project? This shawl is exactly what you need: stripes, Aran yarn and vivid colours!


I designed this shawl to teach anyone to knit a striped shawl in no time. Aran-weight yarn, big needles, garter stitch: a no-brainer for advanced knitters, a fun challenge for first-time shawl knitters!

Skills Needed
Casting on, knitting, basic increases, binding off

Gauge
11 sts and 26 rows over 10cm / 4” in garter stitch, wet blocked.
Gauge is not crucial for this project, but it will determine yarn usage and final measurements

Finished Measurement
Wingspan, 100 cm / 39.3”, depth 62 cm / 24.4”

Materials

Yarn
Triskelion Elmet Aran, 75% Bluefaced Leicester, 25% Masham, approx 300 g , 480 m / 525 yd aran-weight yarn. Sample is knit in:
C1: Idisi (pink)
C2: Cerrig (grey)
C3: Wade (blue)

Needles
5 mm (US size 8), 150 cm / 60” circular needles, or size to obtain correct gauge

Tapestry needle to weave in ends

At least 4 stitch markers (here are some I make and recommend)
