Honey Moss by Andrea Mowry
This shawl is knit sideways, increasing along one edge to create an asymmetrical shawl. The first half of the shawl is cables, which then give way to lace once we have built up a larger stitch count.
Wingspan - 75”/190.5 cm
Depth - 43”/109 cm
These are just approximations. Total yarn usage will depend on the yarn you use (fiber content, ply, etc.), your personal gauge, and any modifications you may make.
Worsted Weight Merino/Linen Blend
500 g/985 yds/900 m
For this shawl I chose a merino yarn blended with linen for the warmth and softness of the merino and ultimate drape of the linen. This worsted weight yarn creates an incredibly squishy and generously sized shawl to wrap up in!
