Choose a sequence of five colors to knit this large short row shawl in relaxing garter stitch. Yarn overs increase in size to create graphic holey arches. Fade your colors together by striping them into the next color while working short rows to expand the wingspan edge. This simple design is ideal for featuring gorgeous hand dyed yarns whether it’s a colorful fade or a more scrappy striped version.
Paint with your yarns and let this design be a canvas for showcasing your favorite colors!
