This shawl is knit in stockinette stitch with panels of eyelet flowers. The yarn is  listed as a thick and thin fashion yarn. It yields an open-and-opaque fabric, with the eyelet stitch patterns creating additional open spaces.


The King Cole Opium yarn is a blend of 54% cotton with acrylic and polyamide added making it an easy-care as well as light-weight accessory.

Worked on US8 (5mm) needles, the shawl required around 1-2/3 balls of the yarn in the color Peacock. It was actually quite pleasant to work with and very interesting to see the fabric patterning develop.

Size: 80×30 in (203×76 cm)

Happy Knitting!
