This large shawl begins at the bottom with small trapezoid shapes in garter stitch. Increases expand the trapezoids as they change color. The jagged border is picked up and knit with thin stockinette and garter ridge stripes. An I-cord edge frames the entire shape.
Choose two colors for a strong graphic effect or change colors in every section using your stash yarns.
