Magpie Fibers has created special kits for this shawl, including 2 skeins of Solstice and coordinating mini-skeins of Swanky Sock for the marled fringe. Find kits here
Untitled #1 is a shallow, elongated triangle shawl with a marled fringe border. The body of the shawl is knit sideways in garter stitch, with alternating eyelet rows to add dimension and interest. Knit with Solstice, a cotton/silk/merino blend, this DK weight shawl is quick to knit but has an airiness that makes it perfect for all seasons.

Finished Measurements: 77” (195.5cm) wingspan and 19” (48cm) depth, plus 5-6” (12-15cm) fringe border

Materials: 2 skeins of Magpie Fibers Solstice (50% domestic superwash merino, 25% domestic cotton, 25% silk; 300 yards/100 grams) for the body of the shawl, and 130 grams total of Magpie Fibers Swanky Sock (80% superwash merino, 10% cashmere, 10% nylon; 378 yards/115 grams): approx. 50 grams of main color, plus 80 grams divided over 2-5 contrasting colors for marled fringe.
Sample knit with Solstice in Tenderness and Swanky Sock in Fior di Latte (main color), Castaway, Harpoon, Hell’s Bells, and Baby Got Black (contrast colors).
