Select a palette of five colors that fade together for this top-down garter stitch shawl. Short rows with chevrons create the unique asymmetrical shape. Yarn over eyelets and decreases highlight the crisp chevron motifs that expand into wide points. You can bind off after any short row wedge to customize the size. Five skeins will yield a large cozy shlanket (shawl + blanket) to keep you stylish and warm.
