The Let It Sparkle shawl is a very soft and light triangle shawl worked with a mohair blend and glitter yarn.
In order for the very thin glitter yarn to create a good contrast, it is recommended to use a mohair blend and not a kid silk mohair. This way the glitter yarn can create a beautiful contrast without the mohair becoming too dominant.
By following the pattern, you will have a scarf measuring approximately 110 x 55 cm (43.5 x 21.5”) but you can easily adapt it by adjusting the number of repeats of each pattern block, making it thus longer or shorter.
