The other night we went out for dinner and I wore this shawl, so it reminded me I should feature it on the blog.
It’s had a lot of compliments at shows as well – it’s called Sister Syster and is by Asa Tricosa.
It requires 800-900 yards, so with 218yds per 50g ball of Milburn 4ply (which is what this one is made in) you’ll need four or five balls. Milburn 4ply is a great choice for this shawl as although the silk content aids with drape and shine, the woolliness of it keeps the shawl light and fluid.
The elongated, tapering sort-of-triangle-ish shape is ideal for both wearing in a scarfy style as well as throwing around the shoulders in a more tranditional shawl style.
