It’s hard for me to believe that five years ago I joined a community of awesome farmers, dyers, spinners, potters, beaders, designers, and other fiber artists all participating in the Phat Fiber Sampler Box. This shawl is a tribute to Jessie and my “Phatties” - it uses samples from various boxes spun as singles and plied with a neutral grey merino.

The shawl is worked from the bottom tip up with a simple angled lace pattern. Because the increases are located along the center spine, the finished shape is like a squat diamond that results in a shawl collar when worn. This version has a lightly ruffled border along the top, but you could work that straight if you choose. This pattern works equally well in a finer yarn and at multiple sizes; let the spirit of the sampler box guide your knitting!
