A very fun to knit shawl that starts with a mosaic border followed by an asymmetrical body worked on a bias. This design was inspired by the beautiful pink speckled yarn, My Cheri Amor by Three Irish Girls. I thought this yarn so lovely I just had to make something with it! So I paired with two solid colors and created this shawl. Go grab a pretty speckled yarn with 2 coordinating colors and have fun watching the color play as you knit!

Just for fun I am running a KAL for Allie in my Wood House Knits group! Come join the color fun! Post here if you are interested.

Win the yarn to make Allie! Three Irish Girls is giving away the 3 skeins in the same color as the sample, so fun!!  I will be running the giveaway on Instagram, @woodhouseknits. Check all the details there.

This wrap is knit from wide end to narrow end, starting with a mosaic patterned border that can be worked in either Garter stitch like the sample or Stockinette stitch. There are two Keys for the chart provided, one for each method. The remainder of the shawl is worked in Garter stitch in contrasting stripes. Decreases at each edge and increases in the center create a chevron shape; varying the rate of the edge decreases produces an asymmetrical arrow. Beginning after the Mosaic Border, stitch counts are given as follows: narrow side/wide side; total sts.
