Gather five shades of fingering weight yarn to knit this spiraling garter stitch shawl. Begin at the top center and increase with yarn overs to achieve the expansive shape. The rows are very relaxing and easy to memorize so you can enjoy your beautiful colors. Bind off at any time for a custom size and enjoy the swirling movement of this beginner friendly pattern.

Finished Measurements
108′′ / 274cm wingspan length, 24′′ / 61cm from CO to BO edge measured along the widest part. Measurements taken after blocking.
