Masgot Shawl knitting pattern and kit

A kit to make Masgot - a knitted shawl by Justyna Lorkowska (aka Lete's Knits) using Milburn 4ply in Steel, Natural and Estuary (2 balls of each required). Each kit includes the yarn, pattern and an ECY printed cotton project bag.

About the pattern:

The shawl begins at the center and is worked outwards to border. It is worked primarily in alternating 2-row stripes of Garter stitch. Five inserts of a third color are shaped with short rows and give the shawl a slightly asymmetrical shape. The border is also worked in the third contrasting color.

Size
One: approx. 250 cm/100” wide and 57 cm/22.5” long at center.

Yarn
2 colors, 1 skein each of Polo&Co Masgot Fine (100% wool; 400m/437y per 100g); shown in CC1 - Gres, CC2 - Silex
1 skein of Brooklyn Tweed Loft (100% wool, 275y/251m per 50g); shown in CC3 - Almanac
or
3 colors of any other fingering weight yarn with similar yardage, which gives you the correct gauge.

We have used ECY Milburn 4ply (85% Superwash Bluefaced Leicester, 15% silk; 50g/200m)

Needles
4.5 mm/US #7 circular needle (100 cm/40” long).

Other
2 stitch markers, tapestry needle for weaving.

Gauge
18 sts and 36 rows = 10 cm/4” in Garter st measured flat after wet blocking.
The gauge isn’t crucial on this project, but differences will affect the finished size as well as the required yardage.
