TONQUIN combines two contrasting texture yarns with classic stitch patterns including sections of garter stitch, eyelets and stockinette to create a lovely light-weight and warm wrap. Though Shelly design TONQUIN with a different yarn , we've paired it with two yarns from Pascuali Fiulati Naturali – Balayage and Manada.
Starting from a garter stitch tab, this crescent-shaped shawl is worked with increases on every row. TONQUIN is an excellent choice for advanced beginners who are eager to try knitting with two different weight yarns.
