This semi-circular shawl combines graphic striped sections of garter stitch and brioche with colorful bursts of bubbles. The bubbles are super easy and fun to knit. The pattern is written using a dark and light color for the graphic stripes plus four contrast color pops, but you can use as many colors as you like. A striped I-cord bind off finishes the border of this top-down shawl.
