This shawl is a fantastic transition piece in a fun shape for a ton of wearability! Wear it wrapped around your neck like a scarf, around your shoulders for a shawl, add a shawl pin, tie it… the options are limitless.

Combining garter stitch, two Estonian lace patterns, and stripe sequences, this shawl will keep your attention and challenge your skills. This shawl begins at the very narrowest point and is worked to the other end, featuring decreases in the center ‘spine’ and increases on the edges for the shape.

Choose your favorite three colors of heavy lace/light fingering for this shawl, or mix it up with only two or many more colors.
