Granita is a two-color striping shawl with lace inserts. It is knit in one piece from the center-top outward. With both charts and written instructions, knitters are able to choose the most comfortable way to follow the pattern. It can be easily customized by changing the number of chart 2 repeats. You could also choose to omit the stripes and knit the whole shawl with one color of fingering weight.
