Nothing is more breathtaking than the colors that nature combines. This shawl is a great representation of the amazing beauty in a rainbow.

This is a 7 color, crescent style shawl in lovely fingering weight yarn that combines simple stripes and a lace border. It is worked top down with a knitted on border. Beading is optional, but offers a great introduction to using beads and adds a sparkle to your finished work.

The pattern is fully charted and written.

Originally knit as the a bonus pattern in our Wild Prairie Knits 2014 Mystery Club MKAL series.
