Dotted Rays - Speckled Fade


( / )

Please select all options.

  • This is a PDF knitting pattern.

    This top-down shawl is a colorful variation of the original Dotted Rays design. Choose 5 or 6 colors and create your own gradient by striping the colors together using the Speckled Fade color technique. Westknits shortcut rows with yarn over holes form the long curved shape. Select between the multiple border options and knit a large or super large sized shawl.

    The main difference between this variation and the original is the chevron border option. You can also use the original Dotted Rays pattern if you already have that PDF and apply the speckle fade treatment using my project notes here.
