  • Pattern materials

    YARDAGE

    • Fingering weight wool yarn in the following approximate amounts: 305 yards of Main Color, 305 yards of Contrast Color


    YARN

    • 2 skeins MC and 2 skeins CC of Brooklyn Tweed Loft (100% American Targhee-Columbia wool; 275 yards / 50g) 
    • Photographed in Sweatshirt (MC) and Soot (CC)


    Note that sample was made with exactly 1 skein each of MC and CC.

    If you wish to make the shawl using one skein each, work the 2-Row Stripe Section until you run out of CC, and work the Solid Section until you run out of MC. Your shawl may be a slightly different size if you choose to do this. If you have not matched gauge, your yarn requirements may vary.

    NEEDLES

    • Size A Needle: One 24″ long circular needle in size needed to obtain gauge listed
