Squishy, texture, and color everywhere! Dreaming of Color is a top-down triangular shawl that is destined to become your favorite piece yet. It is worked with 2 colors, dyed 2 different ways (variegated and speckled); it could also be worked in a faded color palette, with four colors that blend into each other. Texture is created from slipped stitches, so that you are only knitting with one color at a time. Knit at a slightly larger than normal gauge, the drape on this triangular shawl is absolutely dreamy!
