Choose five colors to knit this sideways triangle shawl. This wavy shawl pattern features four colors of fingering weight merino wool with one color of lace weight mohair silk. The mohair silk yarn adds a shiny and fluffy accent to the wool colors. Mohair is the spice in the fabric, making it extra soft and drapey. The simple stitch patterns change to keep the knitting interesting and each section features a new striped color combination. You can knit this shawl in any size by simply binding off early for a smaller shawl. Continue knitting more pattern repeats for a larger shawl. I-cord edges frame this classic Westknits shawl shape.
Finished Measurements 87″ / 221cm wingspan length, 55″ / 140cm at widest part. Measurements taken after blocking.
You can create a larger shawl by continuing the pattern repeat as many times as you like. If you work more pattern repeats for a larger than recommended size, you will need more than the specified yardage requirements.
