  • This is a PDF knitting pattern.

    This smooth semi-circle shawl begins at the top center and increases toward the border with simple slip stitch polka dots. These colorful dots remind me of the Lite Brite toy I played with when I was child. You could use lots of leftover sock yarns or mini skeins for the contrast colors or enjoy a fun color changing yarn like the sample shawl. Combine six skeins of West Wool Bicycle as the main color with two balls of Schoppel Wolle Zauberball crazy as the contrast color. The exaggerated wavy border finishes the shawl with a flourish.
