Project Pattern »
InstructionsObviously, I've only used the knitting pattern, not the assembly instructions of the Sagrantino shawl here. If you have a hard time contextualizing your work, take advantage of some graphing paper and DRAW OUT YOUR SHAPES to best design the shawl to the shape you want it to be.
Type of item: Accessory
Mostly Filatura Di Crosa Multicolor, #4053, some Reynolds Fusion leftovers, and Louet Mohair.
What was your inspiration?
I found a 37 skein lot of mohair yarn online for a very good price, and the fuchsia yarns were just calling for a repeat of this pattern I had knitted before. I added some other yarns and tones for alternate interest, also the five skeins of the Filatura yarn weren't likely to be quite enough for the size I had in mind.
What are you most proud of?
The biased shape was a bit of a question mark initially, but with a nice shawl pin, the whole thing drapes beautifully over shoulders and the shape actually gives it added interest.
What advice would you give someone starting this project?
The pattern is so easy rating it intermediate skill level is a stretch. Go for it!
