~ ErattaDec2019: Just a note to say that there may be errors in the stitch counts of this pattern. Apologies but I will not be making corrections to the pattern. Please read notes in pattern re: “How a Ladder is Made” before messaging me with questions. When dropping any stitch, follow the path of the stitch about to be dropped and check that it lines up with a M1. Use pattern at your own risk ;) Thanks!

Inspired by Erika Knight’s Earthly pullover, this shawl, worked from the top down, features a combination of dropped ladder stitches and YO eyelet holes to create it’s torn, “tattered” look. The sport weight wool/bamboo yarn knitted on a slightly larger needle gives this shawl wonderful drape and sheen. Looks great on both women and men!

Thank you to Hummel456 for kindly translating Tattered to German!
