Oregon has a lot of waterfalls. When I was contemplating this pattern, I wanted something that reflected the cascades of a large waterfall. With slipped stitches and a little bit of colorplay, this shawl pattern fairly flew off my needles. Worked as a 3/4 octagonal shawl (6 panels), the extra panels help the shawl sit on your shoulders. This shawl would also be fun in leftover bits of Soft and Aran from other projects. Have fun and stripe away.

This pattern is meant for adventurous novice knitters to experienced knitters and all those in-between. Please read the entire pattern before beginning.
