Riley Rose Shawl
Riley Rose is a 3-colored shawl worked sideways. You begin on the right tip with an interesting garter-tab cast on with a mock i-cord edging and increase up to the point of the triangle and then decrease for the left side of the shawl. Best of all, the stitch patterns and colors change just often enough to keep you from getting bored!
Skills used in this project: Judy’s Magic Cast-On (could substitute another provisional cast on if you like), basic increasing and decreasing, and kitchener stitch.

A Note about Yarn: the One Twisted Tree Prime Fingering yarn used in the sample is a lighter fingering than you may have on hand. If your gauge is different (and likely it will be if you do not swatch), you will use more yarn. Please see notes below for the amount of yarn used when this pattern is knit at different gauges. A special thank you to my test knitters for providing this information.

This shawl is dedicated to my niece Riley Rose who is a bright, creative, caring girl. Her interests are many and varied, skipping around like the patterns in this ever-changing design. Riley is always one to wrap you in a warm embrace and I hope some of that warmth finds you, too.
