Oh, another pattern for striped shawl is ready - this time with some eyelets and chevron.

Simple yet modern and a bit kitschy eyelet patterns and fun stripes are the key for this lovely garter stitch shawl. The shawl is worked from top down in two sections.

Size: 87”/220cm wide and 24”/60cm at center. The gauge isn’t crucial on this project, but differences will affect finished size and yardage.
Yarn: 770 meters (840 yards) of fingering weight yarn - 385 meters (420 yards) of both colours.
Gauge: 18 stitches and 38 rows in 10 cm/4 inches ( in garter stitch)

Look how beautifully my design for madelinetosh has been styled! Oh, how I love this image. The next ones are my quickly taken photos, right before I had to ship the sample overseas.

I love this yarn and the color is great too! You find the pattern available for purchase here.

Yarn:  1148 - 1914 yards (1050 - 1750 meters) of Madelinetosh Tosh merino light, or other fingering weight yarn.
