Gather a collection of fingering weight colors to knit this short row shawl design. Dive into your stash and use little bits of yarn and leftovers for the garter stitch sections and eyelet contrast stripes. There are seven sections for you to play with speckled or tonal yarns, perfect for featuring those souvenir skeins from your travels and yarn festivals. Contrast color eyelets decorate the garter stitch sections and I-cord edges frame the triangular shape.

Finished Measurements: 21” / 53cm wide from triangle center point to BO edge, 130” / 330cm wingspan length. Measurements taken after blocking.

Yarn: Fingering weight

Yardage: Approximately 1280yds / 1170m total

I overestimated the yardage to be safe for varying gauges and yarn types, so if you are making a simpler two color version you should have enough yarn using three skeins for the main color sections and one skein for the contrast eyelet rows.
