Select six colors of fingering weight yarn to knit this modular geometric shawl. Each section features a different texture including two-color brioche ribbing, slipped stitches, honeycomb cables, and garter stitch. The seamless fabric is constructed by picking up stitches and knitting the sections together. A final I-cord bind off unites all the textures together.

Sizes: Small (Large)
The small size has a generous wingspan so I recommend this size for most knitters. The large size is quite massive and each section is a lot of knitting. If you love shlankets (shawl blankets), go ahead and knit the large size.

Finished Measurements: 78 (110)” / 198 (279)cm wingspan length, 21 (28)” / 53 (71)cm at widest part. Measurements taken after blocking.
