    This semi-circular shawl uses two colors striped together with playful stitch patterns and a pop color border for a small size. Stripe each section with different colors as shown in the large size sample. 

    The instructions include garter stitch, seed stitch, knit ‘n slide, brioche, and lace patterns with graphic stripes. Use a color pop or stripes for the feather and fan border to finish this splashy top-down shawl design.

  • Small Size
    Undercover Otter Squirm Sock
    MC - Amsterdamned
    CC - Plan 9
    Border Color - Lobstrocity

    Large Size 
    10 colors of fingering weight yarns and lace weight mohair/silk
    Color A - Silver Gray (La Bien Aimée Alpaca/Silk/Cashmere)
    Color B - Green (Qing Fibre Merino Singles Moss)
    Color C - Speckled Gold (Qing Fibre Merino Singles Embers)
    Color D - Dark Purple
    Color E - Dusty Pink (Qing Fibre Merino Singles Dust)
    Color F - Turquoise (CaMaRose Yaku 1221 Himmelbla)
    Color G - Gold Mohair/Silk (Isager Mohair Silk 63 Oak)
    Color H - Navy Blue (CaMaRose Yaku 1710 Somandsbla)
    Color I - Light Orange Sherbet
    Color J - Light Peach with Speckles (La Bien Aimée Merino Singles Péche Mignon)

    Use a full 100g skein for Colors D & J since they require between 70-85g each for the border and other sections. The rest of the colors require less than 40g each so you can use smaller amounts of yarn. I love adding lace weight mohair/silk for 1 or 2 of the colors. Mohair/Silk yarns add extra drape and fuzzy texture to the fabric.

    Use these color notes to help with color placement for the 10-color Large Size sample. You can of course use your colors in any order that you like.
