Choose six colors to knit this geometric garter stitch shawl. Each section is knit with one color at a time while you pick up sts and attach each new section to previous section, so there is no seaming. The long angular shape inspired by crystal formations features a large center section with Schoppel Wolle Zauberball Crazy, a fascinating self-striping marled yarn. The small sections framing the center self-striping shape feature semi-solid color pops. Collect a vibrant color palette and enjoy the magic of modular knitting!
