Worked from the bottom up, Mendon is a unique colorwork shawl that combines the shifting colors of Chroma with a solid color yarn to create a bold and vibrant design. The shawl begins with a corrugated rib edge and then works its way into the colorwork patterning. Finally, there are short-rows worked with stripes to blend the colors while shaping the shawl.
