Jonesy is an asymmetrical triangular shawl with twelve stripes --- perfect for colorplaying and easy knitting! Wear it and you will have twelve lives like Ripley’s formidable and lucky cat Jonesy or Jones (yes, I like that movie. Alien I.).
Its shape will draw attention to you, nevertheless. So why not enhance it with a bit of crazy color-striping?
Here you can see a color-combination for the dk-pattern version I called plumcake. But what about a black/white, grey/beige, neon/beige or gradient rainbow on your shoulders? :) Yes. You HAVE to knit several versions… ;) Choose your own colors, as much or as few as you like!
A dk weight or {fingering weight}? Knit your favorite. You could even knit the dk-pattern version with fingering weight and get a much much smaller neck thingy. Have fun!
