Bliss is a large symmetric triangle shawl knitted holding one strand of fingering-type yarn together with one strand of Lace-type yarn. It is worked in one piece, back and forth from left to right. 

With this design, I meant to create a shawl that would be warm thanks to the yarns used, comfy due to its large size but, yet elegant thanks to the baroque-styled cable that runs all along the border. I also wanted it to be fun and easy to make. 

The model is accessible to curious beginners. Instructions are both on charts and written row by row.

 

Yarns:

This shawl is knitted holding 2 yarns together: 1 fingering-type yarn 

and 1 Lace-type yarn (mohair and silk) **or approximatively 770m / 842y of each yarn**. You can also knit it with only one strand of DK-weight yarn.

 

Sample was knitted using 2 skeins of ByNightCreations MilkyWay (85% SW merinos / 15% viscose – 100 g/400 m/440 y) dyed with hibiscus and 2 skeins of ByNightCreations Halo (72% Superkid mohair / 28% mulberry silk - 50g/420m/460y) dyed with cutch and cochineal (cachou-cochenille).
