My go-to shawl construction technique is to start with 3 stitches and gradually increase to full width. I always seem to choose this technique because it feels quicker for some reason, and the interesting bits happen at the end, keeping the motivation high.
This shawl is no exception, starting with 3 stitches and increasing gradually until the shawl body is complete. The lace edging is then knit on from side-to-side, so no sewing needed!

When I saw that Maniototo Wool had a Luxury Lambswool out, I knew it would be finding its way to my needles.
I love a big warm DK shawl, especially at this time of year. They knit up fast and drape so nicely over the shoulders. Of course, it helps if you have deliciously soft yarn, that's why I knew the Maniototo Luxury Lambswool had to become a shawl. The sophisticated Maniototo hand dyed colours are so easy to wear. Inspired by nature and beautifully subtle.
The shawl uses 2 and a bit skeins of Maniototo Luxury Lambswool. There will be enough of the third skein left to make a beanie if you feel like it. Or you and a friend could split the third skein perhaps.
