Masgot: knitted shawl 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 (which has a pdf download code), ECY printed cotton project bag, and sachet of Soak no rinse wool wash.

From the Ravelry project page for Masgot:

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.
