Worked in luxurious cashmere and merino yarn, this pretty, half-pi shawl is worked from the top down. A border of delicate lace patterns creates a dramatic effect contrasting with garter stitch. Both charts and written instructions are given for the lace patterns.
It is not necessary to cut the yarn on two row color changes. Simply carry it loosely up the side of the work twisting the yarns to avoid long floats.
Although this is a shawl, it is important to obtain gauge in order to avoid running out of yarn and to have your finished shawl match the size shown. Adjust needle size as necessary to obtain gauge. The gauge given in the pattern is a blocked gauge.
Required yardage per color, MC (green in photos) approximately 290 yds (265m), CC (grey in photos) approximately 450 yds (412m).
The sample was made with Hedgehog Fibres Cashmere Merino. A suggested substitute yarn is shown below.
