Gauge: 23 stitches = 4 inches in Garter stripes after blocking. Although gauge is not crucial for this project, it will affect the finished size and yarn requirements. A looser gauge will result in the use of more yarn.

Finished Size: asymmetrical triangle - 76” x 60” x 40”

Yarn Substitution Notes:
This pattern was written with a mohair laceweight yarn as C1. If you have a mohair sensitivity you can use a wool or alpaca lace weight yarn, this will give you a similar lightweight drape to the sample shawl shown. You could also knit it using a fingering weight yarn. Keep in mind this will produce a shawl that is still beautiful but less lightweight and flowy than the shawl shown in the photos.
