    Choose a fading palette of colors to knit this lovely short row shawl design. The DK weight version requires four skeins of yarn fading from light to dark with various knit and purl stitch patterns to keep each wave interesting. Four skeins of fingering weight yarn will create a super large wrap with generous flowy drape. Finish the edging with a folded picot hem or work an I-cord bind off to frame the final shape.
