    An asymmetrical garter stitch shawl with three columns of textural cluster stitches. Bassenfell is worked from tip to tip with a clean i-cord edging to give it a graphic feel. Originally designed for Cumbria Fingering, this new version in The Fibre Luma has a beautiful stitch definition and a generous, cosy feel that is much needed on cool Spring days.

    NEEDLES: 4mm (US 6) 80cm (32 in) circular needle (or size to obtain gauge) when working Luma.

    TENSION: 20 sts and 32 rows to 10 cm (4 in) in Luma, measured over garter stitch after blocking using 4mm (US 6) needles.
