The Andecha shawl by designer Belén Fernández is a very simple and intuitive pattern suitable for beginners and first time shawl knitters.
Andecha is an Asturian word (the dialect from the northern Spanish region where Belén Fernández is from). It’s used to denote a group of neighbours who would traditionally take turns to help each other out working the fields, making it more of a social occasion.
The Andecha shawl has a triangular shape with a traditional feather-and-fan pattern made of very simple increases and decreases.
This shawl uses Opus in three colours.
Shown in Grey, Cinnabar, and Cranberry.
Two 100g skeins for the main colour and one mini skein for each contrasting colour.
