Knit your own Fresco!

Frescono is an asymmetrical triangle shawl worked sideways. Small geometric motifs appear as you knit, made by slipping stitches (mosaic knitting). Knit in garter stitch, the motifs appear in bold relief and follow the curve of the shawl. Frescono has an I-Cord Edge and is finished with an I-Cord Bind off.

You will need 2 contrasting colors, appr. 400 yards of each color. Size is adjustable and you can literally knit until you run out of yarn!

This pattern has been tested. Head over to the project pages to see the beautiful shawls knitted by my testers!
