This top-down shawl combines two of my favorite things, garter stitch and stripes! I designed a green semi-solid colorway from Lorna’s Laces to combine with a black and white colorway that has the look of newspaper or birch bark.
Enjoy the easy knitting of this squishy fabric while you progress towards the stranded border.
