Zirkus is a crescent shaped shawl, which is worked top-down in one piece from the centre out.

It is knit in garter stitch combined with slipped stitches in two colours.
The fun colourwork band that is placed along the bottom of the shawl is creating an eye-catching item which is easy and cosy to wear :)

The mosaic motif is an easy to knit stitch pattern that is using slipped stitches and only one colour per row.

depth: 39cm / 15.3“
