This shawl recipe allows you to sample a bunch of different knit and purl combination stitches to make an artful, beautiful, and airy shawl.
Yarn: 2 skeins Snapdragon Light Fingering, 700 yd [640 m] each. Besides the basic shawl recipe, I have also included exact instructions for the purple shawl in the pictures in which I used nearly one whole skein. If you choose to go this route, with only one skein, be prepared to fly by the seat of your pants a bit.
Needles: Size 7 US [4.5 mm] 24 in. [61 cm] circular needle, or whatever size you need to get gauge
Gauge: 5.25 stitches and 8.5-9 rows/in. [2.5 cm], in stockinet stitch after blocking
Smaller (one skein), using almost the whole skein, after blocking – about 60 in. [152.4 cm] across and 20.5 in. [52.1 cm] deep
Larger (two skeins), after blocking – about 81.75 in. [207.6 cm] across and 36.5 in. [92.7 cm] deep
