The SKEINO CRUISE SHAWL comes in a star shape created with 7 sections. The base pattern is Stockinette Stitch. Increases and decreases are forming the star sections for this top-down knitted shawl. The knitting kit contains 4 skeins of our SHIMMER YARN, 2 skeins in rich and 2 skeins in pastel from the same colorway. The yarn is very soft and shows the silk strands as a tweed effect. Both shades blend into each other, starting with the rich color and ending with the pastel color. Random lacy rows create an additional effect and form a zigzag line. Many wonderful color combinations are available to catch your eyes. With a total of 1100 yards (1000 meters) this kit provides the right amount of yarn to form a good size shawl. The neckband creates optional bands to tie the shawl around your shoulders. SKEINO offers the right # 8 (5 mm) circular knitting needle in 40-inch length in our accessories section.
