A striking mix of textures and color will surely transform any outfit! This slanted rectangular shawl delivers all that and allows you to effortlessly combine your favorite three colors.

The colors are artfully combined with varying stretches of Garter stitch and two different lace stitch patterns. One is a pretty leaf lace and the other is a more open, trellis lace. Both are charted and written.

Separating out the pretty lace sections are easier Garter stitch segments to blend the colors in throughout the length of the shawl and provide subtle textural contrast.

The slanted rectangular shape is easily created. The shawl is knit to a generous width and length so it can wrap effortlessly around your neck and shoulders with lots of color and texture impact.

Sample shown was knit in Purl Soho Linen Quill. Suggested yarn substitutes listed.
