Welcome Back Garter ws a Mystery Shawl KAL that started January 21. It is now finished and ready for all!

This is a generous, drapey, shawl that is knit entirely in garter stitch. It is done in 5 sections and has a triangle and a band on top that allows for shoulder draping, which can be an issue with rectangular shawls. Choose your favorite colors to create a one of a kind wrap.

Skills needed

Knit, purl, cast on, bind off, picking up stitches, k2tog, loving color! There are a number of ends to sew in but it’s worth it - beauty isn’t free, you know.
