  • This is a PDF knitting pattern.

    This semi-circular shawl features seven colors of fingering weight yarn striped together. Textured stitches and eyelet stitch patterns decorate the large shawl shape. Each section is simple and addicting, so you are always looking forward to the next color and stitch pattern. The instructions include video tutorial links to learn how to work the I-cord Tab Cast On, the Elongated Criss Cross stitches, and I-cord Bind Off. Choose seven colors with a high-contrast color relationship for a bold and graphic striped shawl. You can also select seven shades that have a softer low-contrast effect for a subtle textured shawl. The border is decorated with chevron eyelets, resulting in a large, light, and flowy Westknits shawl.
