Dilué is an asymetric, semi-circular shawl worked with a succession of garter stitch and easy to memorize lace sections, worked in short rows to get this offset effect that plays with the gradient in both ways (from lighter to darker and from darker to lighter) for a bit of magic!
The gradient is worked over 2 skeins, to make this shawl, we will use the lighter end of the first skein and alternate with the darker end of the second skein.
Approx 180 cm-71’’ in length/ 68 cm-27’’ in depth after blocking.
18 stitches and 30 rows = 10 cm/4’’
in garter stitch, lace blocked.
Gauge is not critical for this shawl, but please note any change will affect the final size and yarn requirements!
Yarn & Notions:
