There are special skeins of yarn that practically dare you to do something spectacular with them. No little project will do when you have a skein as breathtaking as the rainbow gradient in this project. The Daring Double Shawl is all about drama. The garter and ribbed borders
help showcase the self-striping yarn in this shawl so that you can focus on those beautiful stripes. Creating a picture frame effect that draws your eyes to the vertical stripes, the Daring Double Shawl will amplify the beauty of any self-striping yarn you choose to knit. This shawl is made up of two triangles, aligned to create a show-stopping parallelogram. Are you short on yardage or time? Knit just one triangle to create a beautiful shawl that takes half the yardage and half the time!
