Hibiscus was inspired by a trip to the Hawaiian Islands. Featuring an easy star mesh pattern, this shawl is large enough to wrap around you but scrunchy enough for a scarf. And Hibiscus has a hidden surprise – a twist-stitch flower!
60 inches / 152 cm across the top, 20 inches / 50 cm down the centre back
525 yards / 480 m of fingering weight yarn. Shown in Koigu KPPPM, colour P306, 3 skeins.
US 6 / 4mm circular needles, 24 inches / 60 cm or longer, or size needed to obtain gauge stitch markers if desired tapestry needle
20 sts and 36 rows = 4 inches / 10 cm square in stockinette stitch
Exact gauge is not very important for this project, although a tighter gauge will result in a smaller shawl!
