The shawl is all about fun, colors and staying warm this winter. The shawl can be made in two versions. If you love combinations of feminine lace and garter stitch with a little bit of colorful pizzazz, Version 1 is for you. However, if you’re more of a “plain garter” kinda knitter, the unisex Version 2 is the one you should make.

This design was initially released as a Mystery KAL design at Lete’s Knits group.
