This pattern is intended as an introduction to working with caterpillargreen self-striping shawl yarn, and includes an FAQ and suggestions for customizing your shawl.
This pattern is suitable for an absolute beginner and requires basic knitting skills: casting on, knitting, purling, increasing, binding off.
20 sts = 10 cm / 4” in stockinette stitch after blocking. Gauge is not critical, and the stripes will “work” at any gauge. However, gauge will affect the size of the final shawl.
