Choose five colors and fade them together for this large triangular shawl. This simple design is knit sideways in garter stitch from wingtip to wingtip. Lace columns accentuate the angles with smooth I-cord edges framing the entire piece. The colors fade to the middle of the shawl and then fade back to the originating color. This elegant design would also look smashing in a solid color!
