With its astonishing color and heavenly soft yak yarns, you’ll love to make and wrap yourself in this shawlette. It is knit in garter stitch with yarn-over increases, which makes this shawl an excellent beginner project.
This shawl didn’t use the entire hanks of Tibetan Dream yarn. to make it bigger do not stop increases when instructed to do so in the pattern. If you keep going until you reach a size you want then begin the decreases you will use up more of the sock yarn.
