This asymmetrical triangle shaped shawl features five colors of yarn worked into a beautiful angular gradated motif through the use of short rows and stripes. The shawl is worked in easy, elegant garter stitch, and features rows of eyelets between color changes, adding a bit of rhythm and interest. The pattern changes with every new section of color, making this a fun, irresistible knit that you won’t want to put down.

This design honors artist Georgia O’Keeffe (1887-1986), the “Mother of American Modernism”, and is inspired by her iconic simplified landscapes and oral paintings. The beautiful gradient yarn colorway featured in this pattern is a collaboration with Alice O’Reilly, talented yarn dyer and owner of Backyard Fiberworks, where kits are available for purchase.
