For all the slip stitch lovers out there, The Massallo Shawl will definitely keep you entertained. It’s asymmetrical in design and completely reversible- the slip stitch side has a woven look to it and the other side features a 1x1 rib. There is no wrong side! It’s knit in DK weight yarn using six colors that blend from one section to the next. The design can be easily modified to make it bigger or smaller by knitting more or less repeats. A different weight yarn can also be used. Please note that switching yarn weights or changing the number of repeats will change yardage needs.

The Massallo Shawl shown was knit using a limited edition kit from Marianated Yarns. The kit contains six half skeins of Playtime DK in the Superfan colorway.

The sample used the following amounts of yarn (change in gauge will vary the amounts of yarn used):

Color A 96 yds Igneous (dark blue gray)
Color B 127 yds Maple Pecan (rust)
Color C 70 yds Tidal Pool (blue green)
Color D 96 yds Dumbledore (honey)
Color E 130 yds Truly Madly Deeply (red)
Color F 76 yds Hoth (light blue gray)
