Echo Strike is a top down, half circular shawl. Simple and adventurous, basic increases form the body and the wingspan, and contrasting intarsia striping gives the pattern texture and a visual aesthetic. Use DK weight yarn on US 6 needles for a warm and squishy wrap, or for a larger and drapier wrap, use sport weight yarn on US 8 needles. Take it up a notch and stripe the main body for a tri-color adventure!
