This pattern is available in both English and Swedish.

I designed this project specifically for this yarn; it is worked symmetrically from the neck down with 4 y/o increases on every ‘right’ side row (1 at each edge & 2 flanking the center st). It comes out completely reversible in the end. Although the techniques involved are very basic, the eyelet transition rows & changes from stockinet to reverse stockinet with every transition will keep you on your toes. Because these changes are triggered by the shading in the individual ball of yarn & you get to decide when to implement them, each shawl will come out as a 1-of-a-kind work of art. The pattern as written uses only 1 ball, but you could make it as large as you like if you have more than 1, it’s entirely up to you. ..

Ravelry user Carola (kariola on ravelry) was kind enough to translate this pattern into Swedish & allowed me to share it with anyone who wishes to use it. Just one more of the many reasons to love ravelry- many thanks Carola!
