Zilt shawl & scarf set is my contribution for Indie June by LoveKnitting.

The fully reversible design and intriguing cables makes this shawl and scarf a must-have in your wardrobe.

Zilt has an asymmetrical shape and is worked flat from the right tip to the left edge. Zilt scarf has a rectangular shape and both pieces have a built-in I-cord edge.

The pattern contains shawl & scarf. It’s fully written out and also charted until the first repeat of adding stockinette stitches to the shawl is done.
