Every day I hear about escalating conflict, escalating fear, escalating tensions. I am tired of hearing about negative escalation. This shawl was designed in the spirit of positivity. I want escalating FREEDOM, escalating CREATIVITY, escalating JOY! This shawl is my happy place: a bold palette, graphic lines, relaxing garter stitch, and just enough lace to keep things interesting. I hope it brings you a bit of escalating happiness!

This shawl is knit flat from the top corner across to the far edge to create a bias triangle. Three sets of stripes flow across the shawl. Each set of stripes is larger than the last, escalating in size from small to large. The shawl is designed to play with visual weight and texture. When worn, the stripes flow in different directions to create graphic interest from every direction.
