The Vegas Nights shawl is the result of a collaboration between 5 yarn companies and yarn pattern designer Simone Kereit, who all dyed a special mini skein to be joined in one shawl! A collaborative project for the TNNA 2018 Winter show in Vegas, they tied the theme into some of the other things this city has to offer: bright lights, deep desert night skies (if one leaves the lights behind) and many incredible shows!
This top down shawl is an updated take on the classic triangle shawl, with added width for easy wear-ability and fun stripe and drop stitch patterns creating a distinct Spotlight look.
Easy to knit and just the right size to try out new yarns and combine some bright colours with a hint of desert night!
You can check out the pattern on Ravelry here. But the kit comes with a free pattern download.

US 6 (4 mm) min 32”/ 80 cm circular needle to hold large number of stitches, or size to obtain gauge

Take time to check gauge. When working with mini skeins (limited quantity of yarn) a small change in gauge can mean you need more yarn!
