Alright folks here is April's knit-a-long. Dane shawl, by Jane Tanner.
Here is what you need:
Materials: 3.5 oz (100g) fingering weight yarn (350 yards), US size 6 needles (4 mm) ( I would use a circular, at least 32 inches so the stitches aren't crowded)
Use different weights of yarn and needles. For example: Worsted weight yarn (400 yards), on US size 9 needles, for three repeats would make a
smaller scarf/shawl. Using 600 yards and four repeats would give you a shawl 24" deep and 60" along the top curve, blocked. For a sport/DK weight
yarn, I'd suggest a US size 7 needle.
