Troika Shawl Sample
SKEINO’s Troika Shawl is knit on US-11 needles with three different yarns, a silk/merino blend, a merino lace, and a kid mohair. Two strands of the lace merino and one strand of the kid mohair are wound together to make a worsted weight yarn. The yarn repeat is 5-rows and uses a technique of sliding the needle to avoid cutting the yarns. This technique adds an extra design to the shawl. The shawl is generously sized at 18” x 85” (46 x 216 cm) and the softness of the yarn adds to the overall beauty.
