Quixotic Shawl Knit Kit
A bold look with a bit of a European flare that is certainly an attention getter. It is a bit of “contemporary” meets “tomantique”. Featuring simple garter stitch sections, a satisfying stitch pattern with rhythm and simplicity that is easily remembered and added beads all around lend a romantic touch as does the dramatic lace section.
I created this shawl for Carla and her LYS Quixotic in Whitesboro, Texas as yet another KAL, aka knit-a-long.
Included in kit are: All 8 skeins needed in Linen, a fingering weight yarn in a cool and calm Linen/Viscose blend that adds great drape to your shawl with 192 yards per skein. The yarn is perfect for any season. Also part of the kit are the 500 beads and of course your emailed pattern.
US size 4 (3.5 mm) 29” circular needle.
Crochet hook size 10 (0.75 mm) for adding beads.
Gauge: 18 sts and 24 rows in 4” knitted in garter stitch.
