This striking boomerang shawl is worked in a zig-zag lace pattern from pointy tip to knit-on edging. It’s perfect for that gradient with a colour that you might want to minimise, as while the shawl gets wider, the rows are longer and use up more yarn. From the pictures shown you can see that I wasn’t fully enamoured of the pink, which made up a third of this gradient, but the construction means that it isn’t the dominant colour.
Yardage: 400-420 yards of fingering/4-ply/sock/baby weight yarn. Gauge: 11 sts and 24 rows in 4”/10cm in lace pattern. Needles: 5.00mm/US 8 needles or whatever needed to meet gauge. Finished max width of 45“/114cm and length of 61“/155cm.
