This shawl is constructed in 6 nearly identical modular sections, forming an octagonal crescent. There are 5 sizes from shoulder warmer to generous wrap, each available in either a 3-color or 5-color version! Garter stitch paired with simple increases and decreases keeps it relaxing. A slip-stitch selvage edge makes picking up stitches easy, while an i-cord cast on, edgings, and bind offs smooth out the transitions between sections.
