There is an elegant formality about the Shutter Shade Shawl. The two-color patterning evokes the louvers and structure of window shutters in the sunshine. The rectangular shawl is worked in a 4-row slip-stitch colorwork pattern throughout. Finished measurements are 25" x 72". It can be machine washed and dried flat. Designed by Mary Lou Egan and rated by Berroco as skill level "easy".
This shawl was designed for Berroco's Remix Light, a blend of 30% nylon, 27% cotton, 24% acrylic, 10% silk, and 9% linen. All of the fibers are recycled and are spun into a yarn that has very little weight for its volume. It is perfect for summer wear but can also extend to spring and fall.
The kit includes the pattern and yarn. For this project you will also need:
- 29" circular needle or staight needles in US size 7 (OR SIZE NEEDED TO OBTAIN GAUGE)
- tapestry needle
