Ohra is the Finnish word for barley. The soft, textural quality of this shawl reminds me of gentle, rippling fields of grain on a summer evening.
Ohra is designed to use 4 colours of fingering weight yarn. You’ll need 2 full size skeins (100 g) and 2 minis (20 g) or the equivalent.
MC1: black/white/peach speckle
MC2: peach/green variegated
CC1: pale peach variegated
CC2: black/white speckle
US 6 (4 mm) needles, or size needed to obtain gauge.
Stitch markers, cable needle, scissors, crochet hook (US 8 or similar size), darning needle
17 sts and 32 rows over 4” in stockinette. Note that gauge is not critically important for this design, but your finished dimensions/ yarn usage will vary if your gauge differs from that stated.

This triangle shawl is worked from the top down, beginning with a garter tab cast on.
