Choose seven colors to knit this fingering weight shlanket (shawl + blanket). Each parallelogram is attached to the previous section so there is no seaming required. This modular design is knit from the center outward, so you can simply stop early for a smaller size.
This pattern is also great for using leftover bits of yarn and single skeins. Use as many colors as you like for this graphic statement piece.
This pattern also comes with instructions to knit the Parallelolamb Blanket, so you get both patterns for the price of one.
Finished Measurements 124” / 315cm wingspan length measured diagonally from tip to tip, 36” / 91cm wide measured across the shorter width. Measurements taken after blocking.
