This shawl is a collaboration with the brilliant GamerCrafting, who's yarns are superb. She has created Mecha shawl kit packs - click here for the kits

Mecha is a very cosy asymmetrical triangular shawl, knitted on the bias. The balanced shaping and curved top edge make it a very comfortable shawl to wear. It is worked in DK weight yarn and knit from tip to edge with a vibrant gradient of mini skeins, which transitions to a semi-solid colour full of body. The combination of comfortable garter stitch, textured pattern and interesting German short rows, all held with crisp and elastic I-cord edging results in a very interesting knit and striking finished project.
