Slipstravaganza was originally released as the 11th Westknits Mystery Shawl KAL. Section 1 begins with striped honeycombs followed by picking up stitches for crisp columns. Slip stitch diamonds feature all four colors and then a small checked slip stitch pattern leads into the chevron border.
Choose two skeins of fingering weight yarn for the main color with three contrast color pops.
Size One size with a customizable border.
You can work fewer CC stripes in the border for a smaller shawl.

Try to get close to the recommended stitch gauge to ensure you don’t run out of yarn. A similar stitch gauge is more important than getting a similar row gauge. Try to get close to 24 sts = 4” / 10cm, but between 22 – 24 sts per 4” / 10cm is also fine. Try not to be close to 20 sts per 4” / 10cm because that will be a looser fabric and you may use more than the recommended yardage.
