Approximately 800 yards/731 meters fingering weight yarn, split equally between two colors (A and B).
US #6/4.0mm (or size you need to get gauge) for working flat
20 sts = 4"/10 cm in garter stitch after blocking
Gauge is not crucial for this pattern but it will affect finished measurements. In addition, the finished object will be very stretchy and malleable when blocking.
Approximate, after blocking
width = 23"/59 cm at center
length = 88"/223 cm from tip to tip
Note that the finished object will be very stretchy and malleable to blocking.
Advanced beginner (basic lace, picot bind-off)
This triangular shawl is knit flat starting at the nape of the neck. It increases at six points to form long wings.
