Designer’s Description: 
I wanted a shawl that could be easily paired with many outfits - casually or dressed up - a shawl I would grab for time and again. The design of the Drift Blanket shawl lends itself to both solid/tonal yarns as well as speckled/variegated colorways. Opt for tone on tone or a more dramatic pairing with high contrast - so many options to choose from - have fun with it!

Drift Blanket shawl is an asymmetrical shawl worked from side to side. The shawl begins with a handful of stitches and is worked to the end by increasing along one edge only to create the asymmetrical triangle shaping. The colorwork for this shawl is created with a slipped-stitch pattern (no stranded colorwork) using two colors. There are two finishing options for this shawl, a herringbone edge (Option A) or a garter stitch edge (Option B).

NOTE: To view colorways in larger scale, select them in the top (main color) gallery. Then leave your MC selected there and choose your CC in the second (contrast color) gallery. Larger scale images will not appear for viewing from the second color gallery. Thank you for understanding this technical limitation. 

Finished Size: Approximately 70”/ 178 cm wingspan x 30”/ 76 cm drop, post blocking

Gauge (after blocking): 
16 stitches and 21 rows = 4 inches
in garter stitch worked on US 10.5/ 6.5 mm needle

Tools Needed: 

US 10.5 / 6.5 mm needle or size needed for gauge, 30” /76 cm circular

US 11 / 8 mm needle 30” / 76 cm circular

US 13 / 9 mm needle 30” / 76 cm circular
(for optional herringbone stitch edge)

Note: When knitting herringbone, it is recommended to use a needle size larger than might be typical for a particular yarn weight. Using a set of interchangeable needles for herringbone stitch is also helpful.

Sample shown in: MC (Flax) & CC (Blanca); because Blanca is out of stock, Ancient Stone is a lovely substitute.
