This pattern was designed as part of The Authentic Collection, a handful of patterns designed with my heart and my origins in mind ❤️

Watch the Collection’s preview here.

An array of stripes, gently transitioning from one color to the next one while creating a mesmerizing series of chevrons.

72 inches (180cm) from side to side.
23 inches (58 cm) from top to bottom at deepest point.

Yarn: 2 skeins of Tosh Merino Light by Madelinetosh (100% superwash merino - 100g / 420 yards). You will need approx. 250 yards of color A and 420 yards of color B. The sample was knit using colorways Silver Fox (Color A; pale gray) and Spectrum (Color B; variegated blue).
Note on yarn use: Every yard of Color B is needed for the shawl so be careful! If you are substituting yarn make sure you have 420 yards, or consider getting a second skein just in case.
Needles: US 6 (4mm) needles.

19 stitches and 32 rows to 4” (10 cm) in Garter St, after blocking (and slightly stretching) the fabric with pins.
Gauge is not crucial for this project. However, changes might result in a different yardage requirement.
