This is Pattern No. 3 in the Suite for Short Rows.
Yarn kits for this design are available here.

Skill Level: Intermediate

As in music, contrasting notes and lines, when played against each other, produce multi-dimensional effects. With the technique of short rows, this shawl produces its own unique melody.

This design is particualrly effective when worked in a self-striping yarn with long colour repeats.

Pattern includes instructions for a scarf version as well as the full-size shawl.
