  • This is a PDF knitting pattern.

    I designed this playful shawl to showcase those beautiful collectible skeins of yarn that you collect at fiber festivals. Fiber Fests are filled with inspiration as you discover new dyers and fascinating yarns to try. This top-down shawl works well with all kinds of color styles and contrast effects. Combine three colors of fingering weight yarn together and enjoy the rhythmic short rows and bands of two-color brioche. There are also tiny little bobbles decorating the short row rays. Subtle color combos will create a smooth shadowy effect while bold contrasting colors will produce a dynamic color pop style accentuating the architecture of this geometric pattern. The resulting shape is quite long and not too deep, the perfect size for showcasing your precious yarn collectibles.
