I love handspun yarn combined with squishy, simple textures. I really enjoyed watching the colours shift while knitting this lovely oversized wrap. A perfect cozy fall project.
I've included non-handspun yarn suggestions and colour management on page 5 of the pattern.
Yarn: For this shawl I spun one 300g pack of Hedgehog Fibres Lucky Dip Fibre in ‘Pastels’. I ended up using 280g of finished yarn which comes to approx. 745m (266m/100g)
Alternatively: 4 skeins of Hedgehog Fibres Sock Yarn or Skinny Singles in a choice of 4 colours. Fingering weight yarn that will be held double.
Needle: 5 mm/ US 8 or to obtain gauge, the scarf is worked flat
Gauge: 16 stitches and 26 rows = 4’’/10cm in stockinette stitch worked flat, after light blocking
