Waves of shifting color radiate from the center point of this shawl in a pulsating pattern. All of the color changes happen automatically due to the self striping yarn, creating an interesting interplay of color as the rows get longer.

This is a knit version of the auras that I see when I have a migraine. Instead of hiding in the dark, I’ve knit this shawl to show what my world looks like on many, painful days.

You can work along at the same time by joining the KAL in my group. There will be a prize drawing at the end.
