    • Knitting pattern for textured, colorful shawl that utilizes a gradient set to its best advantage

    Pattern measurements: only inches
    Pattern paper format: only US letter


    Knit sideways in an easy textured stitch with inlaid “pearls,” Night Market incorporates eight colors to mimic the southeastern Asian pasar malam, or “night market,” which holds light and warmth up against the inky night.

    Don’t let the length of this pattern alarm you - because of the eight-row texture stitch repeat, the two-row increase repeat, the four-row shaping repeat, and the color changes, the instructions work best given in line-by-line format.

    Skills required: yarn overs, increasing, decreasing, slipping stitches, picot bind-off (instructions provided)

    Finished measurements: approximately 167.5 cm wide and 48 cm deep, unblocked. This shawl needs minimal blocking and the dimensions should change very little after blocking

    Gauge: 24 stitches to 10 cm of texture stitch, unblocked

    Note: Though conversions to the metric system have been made on this page for your convenience, the pattern itself uses American measurements.
