This is a really simple and flexible pattern. You can use any yarn weight, there are no instructions for yarn weight or yardage: use the yarn you want to and follow the instructions to get a decent size shawl. Its size is highly adjustable, only depends on your needs and purposes. The shawl shows the beauty of a long color changing yarn, but you can use solid yarns too . Make the body and the border contrasting, or keep everything in tone.
SUGGESTED YARNS Use anything that you have in stash. How much? The exact amount you have! I give tips for adjusting the pattern to your yardage. Colors: solid, semisolid, gradient, self striping. I would only not recommend the very busy variegated yarns.
