    • This is a pdf knitting pattern.

      Gather five shades of lace weight mohair silk to knit this cloudy triangular shawl. The fading marl technique blends the colors together as you work garter stitch with slip stitches. Two strands of yarn are always held together for a deliciously frothy fabric. You can customize the size by knitting more pattern repeats for a big shlanket or simply bind off early for a smaller shawl. I-cord edges frame this classic shawl shape.

      18 sts & 32 rows = 4″ / 10cm in pattern after blocking. Gauge is not crucial for this project as long as you achieve a fabric that feels good to you. If you want to swatch, you can knit 6 rows garter stitch + 2 rows stockinette stitch.
