Alejandra is an asymmetrical triangle shawl worked sideways. You work the first third of the shawl in stocking stitch, followed by two alternating lace patterns, and then end with a trellis lace edging.

The shawl was designed to be knit using two sets of Manos del Uruguay Fino mini skeins, with the colours fading from one to the other and each section narrowing as the stitches are increased along the top edge of the shawl. Alternatively, the shawl may be knitted in one or two colours, using two x 100g skeins of Manos del Uruguay Fino.

Manos del Uruguay Silk Blend Fino (70% Merino wool/30% silk, 450m/490yds per 100g)
2 x 100g hanks or 2 sets of 5 mini skeins
