I used a ball of a gradient yarn that I purchased from Yarnstreet.com

I have no affiliation with the company, I just liked the colours! You can use any fingering weight/4 ply yarn of your choice and you will need approx. 700 – 800m to make a shawl in a similar size.

Weave in all loose ends. Soak your shawl in lukewarm water and gently wring in a towel. Lay project out to finished size and pull gently into shape. Pin in place and leave to dry. Take your time pinning finished shawl, and use a pin on each picot of final row…….it will make a huge difference to the finished piece! Add tassels if you wish.

    It’s absolutely beautiful! I’ve been eyeing this for a while but hasn’t been able to locate that yarn until now (I really love the colour you’ve used) as that particular colourway has always been sold out. Once I’ve got the yarn I’ll be attempting to make this shawl for a friend 🙂

      Thank you so much! I was also trying to get more of the yarn but was unable. I must check and see if the other colours are back in stock….I had my eye on a few of them:)

        Yarnstreet had it back in stock a couple of days ago so I ordered one. 🙂 They seemed to have quite a few different colours in stock as well. It seems you need to check on them fairly regularly.
