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 break up variegated yarns and beautifully distribute all the colors. Dropped yarn overs create the smooth arched shape and extra long stitches that magically expand the shape. A picot bind off gives this playful shawl the perfect textural finishing touch.
