Setina has such an unusual construction, worked sideways with a game of increases and decreases that it gives a nice result of stripes going in a different way for each section!
The lace edge is easy to memorize and is worked at the same time than the striped body (no picking up, no infinite last rows!) which makes it a fun and boredomless knit, with no more than a hundred stitches on the needle.
This construction also allows it to be fully customizable in depth and in length, you can use whatever yarn weight you want. A section in the pattern is dedicated to adaptation tips.
Approx 140 cm length/ 40 cm depth after blocking.
19 sts and 42 rows = 10 cm/4’’ in garter stitch, lace blocked.
Gauge is not critical for this shawl, it can be made with any kind of yarn, but please not this will affect final size and yarn requirements!
