Hazelbrook is the perfect wrap for cool evenings on the beach or a chilly spring morning after a rain. The easy lace pattern creates a beautiful design throughout giving a lightweight texture. The size of the finished shawl is ideal for wrapping yourself completely, for those extra chilly days or nights. The shawl is knit from the narrowest point to the widest, using increases on one edge to create an asymmetrical shape. Finished measurements are approximately 46" across widest end x 73" down center. Berroco has given this design a difficulty rating of intermediate.
Hazelbrook uses Berroco's thick-and-thin summer yarn called Quinoa. It is 91% cotton and 9% nylon, with irregular slubs that create a casual, pebbly texture. It is a DK weight yarn but it is knit here at a slightly looser gauge of 5 stitches per inch in stockinette. Quinoa can be machine washed on gentle and dried flat.
The kit includes the pattern and the yarn. For this project you will also need:
- circular needle in US size 7 OR SIZE NEEDED TO OBTAIN GAUGE
