The perfect cozy shawl to wrap up in! DK weight yarn makes this a quick and squishy knit while the biased increase adds extra interest. Construction allows for varied color combinations…pair high contrasting colors for a bold shawl or create a more subtle contrast using similar colorways. You can also use scraps or mini skeins for each stripe for a great stash busting project! This shawl is great for new knitters but also attention holding for more experienced knitters.
