I love making shawlettes for myself because I can wear them as scarves under my coat in the cold, and then use them as accessories over my clothes while I’m out. Being a native New Yorker, I have a lot of black in my wardrobe, so the Over the Rainbow colorway in Bonita Yarns Kaleidoscopic seemed like a great way to bring a little sunshine with me wherever I go.

This pattern was originally designed for the Make it for Me! Crochet-a-Long with ELK Studio.
