Making Advances by Jennifer Dassau
Hedgehog Fibres Skinny Singles,
colors Urchin & Vengeance

Ultimately wearable, this shawl will become a go-to piece for seasons to come. Making Advances by Jennifer Dassau is a long, easy to style shawl knit with two contrasting colors of Hedgehog Fibres Skinny Singles. Hand-dyed in Cork, Ireland, color comes to life on this soft, single-ply fingering weight yarn spun from 100% Merino wool.

Color is the star of this triangular shawl, so Jennifer kept the knitting simple & relaxed...perfect for summer! The piece is worked top-down from a garter tab cast-on for the main triangle, then stitches are bound-off on one side. The remaining side is worked in a long asymmetric extension.

The finished shawl is 75” long & 22” deep. It requires just 1 skein each of two Hedgehog Skinny Singles in contrasting colors & a size US 6, 32” circular needle.

The pattern is available to buy in store and on Ravelry.

With over 150 colors of Hedgehog Skinny Singles in stock, the combinations are endless! Be sure to check out our new exclusive Hedgehog colorways.

Happy Knitting!
