A vibrant and asymmetrical shawl is sometimes what you need to add a bit of zing into your life~
It being October, meaning the leaves are changing colors and trick or treating with the kids is happening, this shawl will keep you cozy and looking good!

This shawl was knitted from a Yarnz2go knit kit and this color name is appropriately called Drama/Olive. The drama continues with its unusual shape and color/texture changes. Knitted all in one piece though the first part is done top down in an increasing half crescent shape after which you pick up stitches and knit into a different direction to add waves and more decreased waves and finally add some unexpected top stitching…
So boring, it is not!

The pattern is written, offers lace charts and a photo tutorial.
