Short Description: An array of stripes, gently transitioning from one color to the next one while creating a mesmerizing series of chevrons.
Gauge: 19 stitches and 32 rows to 4” (10 cm) in Garter St, after blocking (and slightly stretching) the fabric with pins.
Gauge is not crucial for this project. However, changes might result in a different yardage requirement.
- 72 inches (180cm) from side to side.
- 23 inches (58 cm) from top to bottom at deepest point.
Materials Used: Yarn: 2 skeins of Tosh Merino Light by Madelinetosh (100% superwash merino - 100g / 420 yards). You will need approx. 250 yards of color A and 420 yards of color B. The sample was knit using colorways Silver Fox (Color A; pale gray) and Spectrum (Color B; variegated blue).
Note on yarn usage: Every yard of Color B is needed for the shawl, so be careful! If you are substituting yarn make sure you have 420 yards, or consider getting a second skein just in case.
Needle Size: US 6 (4mm) needles.
Other Details: Stitch markers, tapestry needle, blocking aids.
