This shawl is knit flat, from the outside edge, in,, starting with the front, and knitting until the neckline, placing all sts on hold. The back is knit from the outside edge in, to the neckline. With both WS facing each other, you will graft the two pieces together using the three needle BO, placing sts on hold for the neckline to be worked later. This shawl should fit like a poncho, with the smaller measurement of fabric in the front. It can be worn over the shoulders, or wrapped over and around, connected with a shawl pin.
Washing: I always recommend hand-washing on cold for best results, lie flat to dry.
Color tone and placement very from skein to skein, due to the hand dyed nature of this yarn. Please note that before purchasing the yarn.
Shipping time is 1 week - 2weeks, depending on the USPS pickup schedule.
As always, thank you so much for supporting my small business, and through the Star Wars Knitting The Galaxy book, my designs as well!!
I try my best to take photos to accurately represent the colors but since each computer/mobile device displays pictures slightly differently, colors may differ a little in person than what you see on your screen.
