SKEINO's SUMMER SHAWL is an easy to knit triangle shawl and it is a great piece to start knitting. Three skeins of SKEINO 50% Cotton/50% Fine Merino Worsted Weight yarn are being used for this top down shawl. The pattern uses a combination of knit and purl rows, garter stitch ridges and a lacy rows creating a fast to knit piece with an easy to follow repeat. The 4-ply yarn has a wonderful memory and feels like cotton and it is great for Summer. It is easy to care for since it has been treated to be machine washable (superwash). As always with SKEINO yarn, all colors are exceptionally beautiful and vibrant. This is very true for these kits but especially pastels for the upcoming season. You will love knitting the SKEINO Summer Shawl and it will help to encourage you to do even more exciting and fun knitting!
