knitting design shawl

Byzantin shawl

I had fun with the Byzantin shawl, playing with one self-striping, one speckled and one semi-solid color. Faster to knit with DK weight yarn, you won’t get bored with this project! Find the pattern on Biscotte Yarns website.

SIZE AFTER BLOCKING : Width = 193 cm (76’’) Height = 61 cm (24’’)

 You will need the following: 

You will also need these knitting notions to work the project: 

  • 4.5 mm – US# 7 (or size needed to obtain gauge)
  • Cable needle
  • 2 stitch marker.

Gauge: 20 sts = 10 cm (4 po) in stockinette stitch (before blocking)

Notes: This shawl is knitted into 5 sections that require no sewing: all parts are knitted together by picking up stitches on adjacent borders.
