Each kit includes 3 skeins of Merlen in colors: Whisper, Basalt, and Patina.

It is ideal for trans-seasonal items such as cowls, shawls and lightweight tops.

This simple but stylish shawl is engaging and rhythmic to knit, and easy and fun to wear. Most of the body is worked in striped Garter stitch. The final section of simple lace engages the mind and draws the eye.



Finished dimensions: approx. 181cm/71.25” wide and 80 cm/31.5” long to bottom point.
