Quintet is a semi-circular wrap that uses a special set of Malabrigo Finito dyed to go together. Look for the Piano, Double Bass, Cello, Violin, and Viola speckled colorways. The five colors of Finito fade from one to the next throughout the wrap while a strand of Rowan Kidsilk Haze and Malabrigo Lace held together provide contrast garter ridges and a wavy edging.

The shawl is also a perfect opportunity to use a fingering weight gradient set, 750-800 yards of mini skeins, or a few hanks of hand dyed fingering weight yarns. Endless possibilities!
