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.
Finished Measurements 82″ / 208cm wingspan length, 45″ / 114cm wide along center point. Measurements taken after blocking. The size is customizable.
