A simple triangle-shawl, to showcase a beautiful yarn.

Designed to show-off a special variegated yarn, this amazing vintage stitch pattern makes a soft fabric with gorgeous drape. The design also works beautifully in semi-solid colours, for a more subtle effect.

In Fresco, you can really see the colours painted on your yarn. It’s on a larger scale than the 4ply/fingering scarf, Painted. Both patterns are available together, for best value, in the ebook Palette.

This is an easy intermediate project, and a great gift-knit.
