Knit your very own dose of vitamin C with this cheerful, sunny shawl! With 1 skein of a Gradient color and a small amount of a natural color, this pattern uses a simple faux-intarsia technique to delightful effect. Knit a slice of orange, lemon, lime, or grapefruit and enjoy a tropical feeling on even the coldest days!

This pattern is fully written and uses only the following stitches: k, k2tog, kfb, M1T (simply a backward yo, explained in the pattern), p, and ssk. Because of the design of the shawl there is no need to twist yarn together to lock the white stripes and Gradient wedges, so yarn tangling is kept to an absolute minimum.

It’s a terrific first project if you’ve been intimidated by working with multiple yarn supplies at once, or by intarsia in general (this isn’t quite intarsia, but it’s a great stepping stone to build your confidence and skill set). It’s also a terrific project for some mindless poolside knitting - after the first few rows of the main Body section you’ll be in the groove, and you’ll hardly need the pattern!
