Stella is a simple yet stunning shawl with lots of possibilities for colour play.
You work this crescent shaped shawl by alternating blocks of garter stitch and eyelet lace. Stella is knitted from the top down with two colours of fingering weight yarn.
The garter stitch showcases the subtleties of hand dyed yarn while the lace sections keep this large wrap airy and lightweight.
Two colours of Madelinetosh Tosh Sock (100% merino; 361 m / 395 yds per 100 g), one skein of both colours. Shown in colours Cove (C1) and Smokestack (C2).
Or similar fingering weight yarn.
Amount of yarn
Colour 1 (C1): 343 m / 375 yds
Colour 2 (C2): 217 m / 237 yds
Size 4 mm / US 6 circular needle. Or size that gives you pattern gauge.
This shawl is worked flat but I recommend using an 80-100 cm / 32-40 inch circular needle to accommodate the growing number of stitches.
20 stitches and 40 rows = 10 cm / 4 inches in garter stitch, before blocking
240 cm / 94 in (width) x 55 cm / 22 in (depth)
