Inspired by the colors and translucent hues of a Rothko painting, this simple shawl is knit entirely in Garter stitch, with slightly ruffled edges to imitate the imprecise edges of Rothko’s canvases.

Choose your favorite colors or match the colors from one of your favorite works of art. This is the perfect project for using a color wheel: Mark the colors on the color wheel you’d like to use and shop for yarns in those colors. You can purchase a simple color wheel at any art supply store or online here: http://colorwheelco.com/.
