This shawl was originally published as the 13th Westknits Mystery Shawl Knit Along in 2022. Choose three colors as you work stripes, short rows, twisted stitches, and cables. The first center section features chevron stripes with the MC (main color) and AC (accent color) along with a fun 3D loop effect. Each section is knitted modularly by picking up stitches or knitting the new section together with a previous section. The AC (accent color) is featured in twisted stitch sections and as I-cord embellishments in the cabled sections. The final symmetrical shape has a long wingspan and lots of geometric angles to showcase your beautiful fingering weight yarn. Customize each section with your own color pops or follow the detailed instructions along with step by step video tutorials. This unique shawl shape is sure to capture your imagination as you look forward to each new section.

US 4 / 3.5mm circular in 40″ / 100cm length or size needed to obtain gauge

10 stitch markers, cable needle, tapestry needle, waste yarn or 2 spare circular needles for holding sts

It’s always good to have some extra stitch markers and split ring markers in case you want to use them while you knit the shawl. Make sure your cable needle is a similar thickness to your knitting needle.

24 sts & 52 rows = 4″ / 10cm in garter stitch before blocking.

Try to get close to the recommended stitch gauge to ensure you don’t run out of yarn. A similar stitch gauge is more important than getting an exact row gauge. Work with a needle size that creates a fabric that you like.
