Five shades of Lang Lace weight mohair silk make this cloudy triangular shawl – Rain & Shine Shawl by master of design, Stephen West. The fading marl technique blends the colors together as you work garter stitch with slip stitches. A simple pattern to follow with lots of fun color changes! Two strands of yarn are always held together for a deliciously frothy fabric. You can customize the size by knitting more pattern repeats for a big shlanket or simply bind off early for a smaller shawl. I-cord edges frame this classic shawl shape.

Kits include 10 skeins of Lang Lace yarn – 2 skeins each of 5 curated colors and the pattern, all wrapped up in a cute organza bag to hold your project.

5 colors (50g each of lace weight mohair) is enough yarn to make a large size shawl.

Needles
US 5 / 3.75mm circular in 40″ / 100cm length or size needed to obtain gauge

Notions
Tapestry needle

Gauge
18 sts & 32 rows = 4″ / 10cm in pattern after blocking.

Gauge is not crucial for this project as long as you achieve a fabric that feels good to you. If you want to swatch, you can knit 6 rows garter stitch + 2 rows stockinette stitch.

Pattern Note: Weave in your ends as you go! Use the Weavin’ Stephen technique so you don’t have to sew in all the yarn tails from the marled color changes. Watch this Westknits video to assist with this technique. https://youtu.be/Fz292NAjH2M
