    This simple garter stitch shawl is composed of three sections that grow with short rows and increases. A DK weight version features 3 neutral colors for a gradient effect. A smaller fingering weight version uses 6 colors that are striped in each short row section. An I-cord border finishes the shawl with a strong pop of color.

    This design was originally named Smooth Move. The name was changed to Garter Breeze for Westknits Bestknits Number 1: Shawls
