Select five colorways of fingering weight yarn and fade them from light to dark in this wavy Westknits shawl. The garter stitch rows are filled with eyelet increases and decrease to form the wavy movement. Short rows create a cascading ripple effect that wanders from right to left. The organic movement in this shawl is inspired by rolling hills and topographic maps. You can customize the length of the shawl by knitting more short row wedges for a longer size or simply bind off early for a shorter shawl.
