    This top down semi-circle shawl begins with my favorite Westknits shortcut rows and yarn overs followed by two-color brioche ribbing, slipped stitches, stripes, and finally a beautiful chevron border. Choose 4 colors of yarn and enjoy the playful knitting journey!

    You don’t need to be super exact about gauge as long as you like the knitted fabric with your chosen needle size. If your gauge is looser, you may need a bit more yardage for each color. If your gauge is tighter, you will probably use less than the recommended yardage.
