This pattern is a part of the Glow Up Knitted Wit collaboration! You can get the pattern individually here, through me, starting on 3/1/19, or, if you’d like all ten patterns for an amazing price, snag the collection now through 4/1/19!

We’re hosting a K/CAL that will run from Spring Equinox (3/20) through Summer Solstice (6/21). There will be prizes and fun galore, so be sure to be following @knittedwit (as well as all of the designers) on Instagram. Check out the collaboration page for all of the information and details about the collaboration.

We’ll be using hashtags #glowupknittedwit, #glowupknittedwitkcal, and #knittedwit, as well as all of the designer’s hashtags.

Bright Side is inspired by the gray winters here in Oregon when the weather clears the sky is bright and beautiful; there is just something magical about rainbows that bring a smile to your face. So many days can be filled with gray skies (or moods) that we need a little reminder to look on the Bright Side. I hope this rainbow shawl will make you smile just as much as the rainbows in the sky.
