Chimera shawl knitting pattern by Holli Yeoh | Twist Collective March 2018

Chimera

This three-quarter square shawl is worked from the centre out, beginning with a garter tab. Two garter tab options are included in the pattern: Turkish cast-on (my favourite) and the standard. One skein of main colour is worked in one stitch pattern, followed by five gradient mini-skeins worked in a second stitch pattern. Hard blocking is recommended as it opens up the lace and makes this pattern shine.

Instructions are included for optimizing the amount of yarn in your skeins.

Both charts and written charted instructions are included for your convenience.
