This top down semi-circle shawl begins with my favorite Westknits shortcut rows and yarn overs followed by two-color brioche ribbing, slipped stitches, stripes, and finally a beautiful chevron border. Choose 4 colors of yarn and enjoy the playful knitting journey!

Finished Measurements: 22” / 56cm from CO to BO, 70”/ 178cm wingspan length. Measurements taken after blocking.

I recommend Madelinetosh Tosh Merino Light or Hedgehog Fibres Sock. They are two of my favorite soft yarns for shawls.  Both of these yarns are available at Art of Yarn.

You don’t need to be super exact about gauge as long as you like the knitted fabric with your chosen needle size. If your gauge is looser, you may need a bit more yardage for each color. If your gauge is tighter, you will probably use less than the recommended yardage.
