This top-down semi-circular shawl features bands of slip stitches every other row for a woven effect. The horizontal ladders in the slip stitch pattern showcase variegated yarns beautifully! Yarn overs form the smooth arched shape and several increases before the garter stitch border create a subtle ruffled edge. The bound off edge features a little picot bind off. Choose two colors of fingering weight yarn in a variegated or speckled colorway and let the yarn shine!

Colorways - Red Fox & September

I use the Red Fox colorway for the beginning of the shawl until I ran out of one skein of yarn. Then, I used the September colorway for the final garter stitch border of the shawl. You can use 2 skeins of the same colorway for a cohesive fabric or select two similar colorways for a subtle shift in shade.

I recommend using variegated or speckled yarns for this shawl. The slip stitches are gorgeous with these multicolored hand dyed yarns!

If you don’t have the exact gauge, that’s okay. The most important factor is that you like the feeling of the fabric.
