Zivatar mini-skein shawl – pdf knitting pattern
Anleitung auch auf Deutsch!
This was the November 2018 pattern for the Knitting Goddess shawl club, using a “magnificent seven” mini-skein set (120g total, comprising 6 shades of grey plus a rainbow skein). It can be easily adapted to other colour combinations – you’ll need around 17g/70m of yarn for the special rainbow contrast band. Charted as well as written instructions are provided.
