This arched shawl begins at the center with only three stitches while yarn over increases quickly expand the shape. Garter stitch short rows add length to one side forming rays that gradually increase in size. I-cord edges and an I-cord bind off outline the entire shape while you knit for a seamless finish. Choose a self-striping yarn or add your own colorful stripes!

Colorway - Rifton
Rifton is technically a fingering weight yarn, but because it’s a fluffy single ply yarn I used it like a DK or worsted weight yarn on larger needles.
