Select one color of fingering weight yarn to knit this textured semi-circular shawl. The stitch patterns include a broken ribbed stitch, daisy stitch, and an intricate eyelet pattern. Garter stitch sections divide the textured motifs for a mix of engaging stitch patterns with mindless knit rows between them. I-cord edges frame the shape of this seamless shawl. Try a soft and silky yarn like Qing Fibre’s Yak Singles, a beautiful blend of merino, yak, and silk. You can also knit this lightweight shawl with hand dyed merino yarns or allow the textures to shine with lofty wool yarns like West Wool Bicycle.

I recommend casting on the shawl and start knitting to check your gauge. The shawl starts small at the top center, so you can use the beginning of the pattern to compare your gauge to the recommended gauge.
