This semi-circular shawl was originally published as the Westknits Mystery Shawl Knit Along in 2021. Choose five contrasting colors of fingering weight yarn and enjoy all of the fun textures throughout this shawl. Stripes, short rows, slip stitches, I-cord loops, bobbles, and welts all contribute to the colorful collage of knitted fabric. The instructions include free video links that visually demonstrate the techniques so you can knit your Shawlography with confidence and enjoy your wearable work of art.

The final shawl used less than the recommended yardage, but I recommend having the recommended yardage above to ensure you don’t run out of any color.

US 4 / 3.5mm in 47″ / 120cm length or size needed to obtain gauge

6 stitch markers, tapestry needle

22 sts & 46 rows = 4″ / 10cm in garter stitch before blocking

Try to get close to the recommended stitch gauge to ensure you don’t run out of yarn. A similar stitch gauge is more important than getting an exact row gauge.
