This is a PDF knitting pattern.
This graphic design is knit with 4 main colors of fingering weight wool and one color of lace weight mohair silk for the decorative eyelet rows. Chevrons and short rows form the geometric fabric while the shape grows gradually into a wider asymmetrical shape.
You will receive instructions for a long scarf shape or a wider shawl shape. Choose a contrasting graphic palette of colors or try a more subtle and faded color palette.

MC - Fingering weight wool
CC - Lace weight mohair
You can use fingering weight wool for the entire project, but I recommend using lace weight mohair/silk for the CC to add extra drape and texture to your project.
