  • This is a PDF knitting pattern.

    Fantastitch is a semi-circular shawl packed with textured stripes and slipped stitches. The samples feature La Bien Aimée Cashmerino and Kumo for a luxurious blend of merino, cashmere, and alpaca fibers. The graphic details and clean lines of the shawl beautifully showcase hand dyed colorways. The pattern is written for seven colors, but you can customize the stripes however you like by adding extra color pops. I recommend including light, medium, and dark tones to accentuate the graphic quality of the shawl. Fantastitch would make an amazing stash buster!

    Small (Large)

    The Rainbow and Gray/Gold samples are the large size. The Purple sample is the small size, so it doesn’t have the final twisted rib and honeycomb slip stitch patterns.
