Born from a love of natural woolly goodness and garter stitch in equal measure, this generously sized, crescent shaped shawl works up quickly in DK weight yarn.

The pattern uses 3 x 50g balls of delicious Blacker Yarns Shetland DK as a neutral base (in White) and then just 1 x 50g ball each of 3 other natural shades in a fun alternating stripe sequence - designed to get the most out of your yarn.

An i-cord bind off - attached as you work - provides a perfect finish to this relaxed and fun knit.

Although beautiful as a natural gradient, this pattern would also work well in modern brights or by pairing a colourful single skein with a more neutral background.
