This is a PDF knitting pattern.
Rainbow Road is a simple yet playful shawl knitted with two strands of lace or fingering weight yarn in a purple or a rainbow palette. Short row wedges in garter stitch create the curvy shape as they increase in size – very addictive to knit! Place the wide end of the shawl on your shoulder first, and then wrap the narrower end around your neck once or twice.
The marled fabric is very squishy and warm, so it is the perfect grab-and-go accessory.
