Elinya is a large, cosy, striped shawl. Knit with 2x 100gm skeins of fingering weight yarn. Knit from the top down in squishy garter stitch for the perfectly snug winter accessory, finished off with a decorative picot border along the curved edge. This Shawl is long and wide – narrowing to a point at each end. With the picot edge curving softly Elinya is perfect for draping over shoulders, or wrapping several times around your neck. The garter stitch makes this a great beginners project, or excellent TV knitting.
