Westknits Kits are available at Stephen & Penelope!

  • This is a PDF knitting pattern.

    Select two colors of fingering weight yarn to knit this graphic beauty. This shawl begins at the top center and increases seamlessly toward the border with fun slip stitches and stripes. You only work with one color at a time, making this project fun and easy to knit. The pattern includes video tutorials linked in the pattern to help you cast and bind off. Choose two high contrast colors for a bold graphic statement or experiment with softer, more shadowy color for a more subtle color effect. Once you complete your shawl, cast on the Contrast Blast Socks to knit some coordinating socks for your shawl!
