Sydney Shawl

The Sydney Shawl is a simple and fun asymmetrical shawl pattern that has an easy repeat and is great for self striping yarn or your favorite solid color! You can work this to be any length you desire, and wear it as a scarf, shawl, or wrap!

A few of my testers used the popular Lion Brand Mandala yarn to make their Sydney Shawl. The self striping effect of this yarn looks so great with this design!

Pattern Notes

You can make the shawl as big or as small as you like by simply doing more or less rows before fastening off.
Starting chain does not count as first stitch.
Work your last stitch of each row in both loops to give it a cleaner finish.
