It’s been a while since I last published a One Skein Wonder pattern. They’re always a favorite.
Storm uses just one skein of precious fingering weight yarn. It features dramatic dropped stitches and short rows that give this pattern a de-constructed look while also giving you a bigger shawl with the same yardage.

And remember we’re soon opening sign ups for our #jojifallkal2019! Maybe you want to join us with this quickie?

MATERIALS
1 skein of Mechita by Malabrigo (100% superwash merino; 420 yards 386m/100g) or approx. 420 yards (386 m) of fingering weight yarn. The sample was made using colorway Storm.

CONSTRUCTION NOTES
This shawl is worked from the center top down. Stitches are increased at each side on every row to give it its characteristic crescent shape.
