In addition to this kit, you will need the following material :
- 3,5 mm Circular needles, with a 100 cm; 40″ cable or more (or the needle size needed to obtain gauge). *Circular needle and the cable length is recommended to fit all the stitches, but the shawl will be worked back and forth.
- Stitch marker
- Tapestry needle
GAUGE: 24 sts = 10 cm in garter stitch after blocking.
FINISH MEASURMENT: width (measured from tip to tip) 190 cm; 75 in. x height (measured at highest point) 68.5 cm; 27 in.
When working rectangular patterns, a 2nd ball of your main color should be added at the end of the first row. To create this little ball of yarn, use the other end of your ball of yarn; you will need approximately 75 cm/ 30 "yarn.
When you have to change color in a row, make sure to cross the yarns on the back of the work (as in the Intarsia technique)
When working sections with rectangular patterns and INCA patterns, you will be asked to slip stitches. These stitches are always slipped purlwise, placing the yarn behind work for RS rows and in front work for WS rows. Also, make sure not to tighten your work too much when you slip the stitches: this will result in a gathered effect of the work which is not desired.

I have completed my beautiful Empire Inca shawl using the beautiful Paintbox yarn.
I love it and it can be worn in such a wonderful way sloped over the shoulders and I added a pin to accent it. Our autumn weather in the Laurentians with the color changing of leaves is just right to wear it for my long walks.
Thank you for a perfect shawl and easy pattern by PatricKnits.
Je suis très satisfaite! Merci!
