I’d been wanting to adapt the stitch pattern from my Mr. Harley Quin socks into a shawl for some time, and imagine my excitement when I found out there was actually a harlequin opal! So perfect! The colorful stone fit perfectly with what I had in mind for this shawl, a pattern that works well with those variegated yarns that have been sitting in your stash that you can’t figure out what to do with. And when I saw my skein of Malabrigo sock in Arco Iris, I knew it was the yarn for this one. What’s also great about this pattern is that it’s really conducive to up/down-sizing. I included an extra set of charts for a larger shawl.

This is the third shawl in VBM shawl collection 3. As with all of the other patterns in the collection, it comes with both charted and written instructions. You can purchase this and the other patterns individually or as part of the collection.
