Using short rows, textured stitch patterns, and a dynamic contrast between two colors, this shawl is an adventure in line contrast! The lines seem to flow into each other and create a feeling of movement and speed. Perfect for a quick-knit shawl with tons of graphic PUNCH!

So go on and grab those two colors from your stash that you’ve been waiting to use for FOREVER and make your knitting converge!
