Marianne Half Hap Shawl
There are no seams to sew as each section is worked off the previous one.
In the three colour version, each section is worked in a different colour, highlighting the three traditional lace stitches used.
Please note: The colours chosen in the three colour sample were a nod to my old college (Royal Holloway) colours, before this combination of colours was given a darker interpretation.
Single Colour Version:
CoopKnits Socks Yeah! (75% Merino Wool, 25% Nylon), 212m/50g): (A) 3 skeins; Chryso
Meterage used: All except 6m of the Socks Yeah! yarn was used at this tension. In order to knit a tension swatch and to allow for slight differences in tension you are likely to need a 4th skein.
