My ‘Fifteen Hundred’ Mini Shawl is the perfect little accessory and such a fun little knit! And once you get into the rhythm of the textured pattern, it’ll be a super relaxing knit too. The fabric is pretty much reversible and has a lovely three dimensional quality. The design is inspired by a collage I made out of photographs of a building I love called ‘Torre America’s 1500’ in Guadalajara Mexico, by Sordo Madaleno Arquitectos.

One Size - finished mini shawl measures approx. 20.5cm wide at widest point, and 134cm long

Yarn - you need approx. 239m of DK weight yarn

Sample one (grey) is worked in Rowan Alpaca Soft DK sh 231 Silver and used two balls
Sample two (green) is worked in Rowan Pure Cashmere sh 098 Olive and used two skeins

Needles - Whatever DK weight yarn you choose to use, use the needle size required to get the standard ball band tension of 22 sts x 30 rows to 10cm / 4in

Sample one required 4mm / UK 8 / US 6 needles of choice for working flat
Sample two required 3.75mm / UK 9 / US 5 needles of choice for working flat

Notes - If you want to make a bigger shawl or use up every bit of yarn you have, you can work extra repeats of the increase section, just make sure that you have at least half of your yarn remaining when you begin decreasing in order to have enough yarn to complete your shawl.
