Grab two contrasting skeins in your favorite hand dyed yarn and let your needles dance with this playful stripe and texture design.
Worked side to side in a crescent shape with increases on both the right side and wrong side rows (at the edges), your shawl will grow quickly in width without adding bulk to the body. You’ll alternate sections of texture with stripes to keep things interesting along the way.
