The Tendo Shawl is a project for advanced beginners to learn or practice short rows. For good knitters the pattern is still challenging enough as a project for travel. The color changes keep knitting interesting and due to the short rows the shawls knits up quickly towards the end.
ITO Kinu - a nubbly noil silk - gives the shawl nice drape whilst ITO Sensai encases the silk to create that unsurpassed soft surface it is known for. The shawl is worked with two strands of yarn held together throughout, 1 strand ITO Sensai and 1 strand ITO Kinu. The shawl will look equally good with Jeans or Business wear.

Additional Materials you need are Knitting needles, Markers and a Darning Needle. If you want to purchase a set of Knitting Needles, please select from the Toolbox in size 3.25 mm. Should you want to create a more open weave fabric which will carry you through all seasons I recommend choose a bigger sized needle up to 4.00 mm.
