Hongdae is an extremely fun area in Seoul (especially if you’re college age, and have a passion for drinks mixed with Soju!). The city lights, neon signs, and energy of this neighborhood inspired this funky shawl.
On Ravelry: Hongdae by Ashleigh Wempe
Length Along Top Edge: 64” (163 cm)
Depth: 34” (86 cm)
21 sts / 34 rows = 4” / 10 cm in Garter Stitch using smaller needles (US 6 (4.0 mm)) after a light blocking
Exact gauge is not critical, but because the shawl requires nearly the entire skein of each color, deviation from the gauge will affect the size of the shawl and yarn requirements.
US6 (4.0 mm) and US7 (4.5 mm) circular needle, or size to obtain gauge at least 40” (102 cm) long.
Tapestry needle, waste yarn, stitch markers (25)
Garter tab cast-on, standard increases/decreases, picking up stitches, I-cord bind off, and mosaic colorwork.
Each Hongdae Shawl kit comes with 3 skeins of Baah Yarn La Jolla. Spun with an excellent twist, this yarn is a delight to knit with. Each skein is carefully hand painted and made from 100% superwash merino wool. It is 2 ply, fingering weight. Each color was carefully selected to create a beautiful shawl!
