  • This is a PDF knitting pattern.

    Choose seven colors of fingering weight yarn to create this fragmented geometric shawl. The color-blocked stripes create a fun staggered movement throughout the fabric. This top-down shawl is composed of seven chevron sections that are knit individually as you stripe your colors. Each new section is attached to the previous section using a simple modular technique, so you only have to work with one color at a time. You can easily customize the size by knitting more stripes for a larger shawl or simply stop each section early for a smaller shawl. The pattern is written for seven colors, but you can use as many colors as you want for a stashbusting version. The squishy garter stitch is framed with I-cord edges, resulting in a beautiful large shawl size.
