  • This is a PDF knitting pattern.

    Enjoy relaxing rows of wavy stripes and chevrons with this luscious top-down shawl pattern. Four colors of fingering weight wool and one color of lace weight mohair silk are striped together throughout fabric. The mohair silk yarn adds a delicate and fluid drape to the fabric. I used Punk Rock Unicorn’s Soul base for the four wool colors and their Moe base for the fluffy mohair halo. Increases and decreases form the mountainous peaks and valleys in the shawl. Each section features a variation of the yarn over placements to create large yarn overs in some sections and little eyelets in others. There are so many fun color options to try with this beautiful shawl shape. Choose one color family with light, medium, and dark tones for a harmonious effect or select any five contrasting colors for a vivid and energetic Striation Valley Shawl.
