~Use heavier yarn for a larger shawl.
~If you use heavier yarn, say a DK then bump up your needle size to a 10 or 10.5
~The Purple and Yellow version uses sock weight yarn by Coastal Colors.
~The Gray version uses Worsted Yarn and Sock weight yarn by Schoppel-Wolle
~You could use more than two colors
~You could use a yarn that stripes (MC) and a solid yarn (CC).
~Make it as a baby blanket by using washable yarn.
Enjoy your day.
