SAVORINGshawl

As summer draws to a close and slowly makes way for fall, I like to make the most of the remaining daylight. I love staying outside as long as possible, soaking up the last rays of sunshine, and then watching it slowly get dark while be snuggled up in my SAVORING shawl.
When I designed SAVORING, I wanted to create a piece that I would wear and cherish from the end of summer into the winter months. The shawl will keep you warm on late summer evenings and can replace a cardigan in the fall. And when winter comes, I'll wear SAVORING over my coat to brighten my day by reminding me of the warmer, lighter time of year.
SAVORING comes in two sizes. They are both started in the same way making it possible for you to decide on the go which size you want to have.

YARN

For the larger size I used
550g of Lana Grossa Ascot (50g, 120m / 132 yards; 57% wool, 25% viscose, 18% alpaca) in colorway 5 (weinrot meliert)
but since this yarn is discontinued I suggest using
700g of BC Garn Hamelton Tweed 1 (50g, 100m / 110 yards; 90% wool, 10% viscose) instead.

GAUGE

16 sts and 32 rows = 10cm / 4" in Garter stitch. Measured after washing without stretching the fabric.
For this project an exact gauge is not crucial; you will still get a lovely shawl when your gauge is a few stitches or rows off. Yet gauge swatching is still recommended.
