Shawl Pattern: Mela

5 Jun

This pattern is for any yarn, any gauge. Just choose your yarn and needles and follow the instructions.

Mela is an easy to knit garter stitch shawl, made interesting by an unusual asymmetrical construction. The different knitting directions are perfect to showcase interesting yarns. This pattern is for any yarn, any gauge but will work best with a yarn with long colour repeats. A variegated yarn will also work well and could be used for the body, with a plain yarn for section 4 for instance.
