This semi-circular shawl is knit with fingering weight yarn striped with lace weight mohair silk for a large lightweight fabric. Seven colors stripe together as bands of brioche stitch mix together with simple striped sections. The textural changes yield an entertaining project with exciting color changes. You can customize the stripes and colors as you knit or follow the recommended color placement using seven colorways.
