Path to Wonderland
Path to Wonderland is an interesting asymmetrical shawl with many eye-catching color elements. It is worked from corner to edge using increases as well as bind-off stitches in order to create stripes on a bias.
These instructions are easy to follow and only include basic knitting skills. There is also no need to worry about weaving in multiple ends, both strands of yarn are carried, almost invisibly along the top edge of the shawl, so that you will only end up with 4 ends to weave in!
