We’re Back In Bloom! This asymmetrical shawlette design begins at one point, growing and blooming into bursts of color and pattern, much like our world as it gradually reopens. Right-side increases every row are balanced with alternating decrease sections on the left, creating a wavy edge. A picot bind-off finishes the shawl with a final blast of color.

1.5 skeins Knitted Wit Fingering (100% SW Merino; 400 yds/115g); shown in colorways: Back in Bloom (color A, 400 yds, multi color) and Dusty Rose (color B, 200 yds, solid).

US size 5 (3.75mm) needles

6 sts / 10 rows per inch in garter stitch, unblocked
Accurate gauge is very, very important, as the shawl uses ALL of the yarn / yardage.
