Create a colorful collage using this geometric design to mix and marl your fingering weight yarns together. The pattern is written using eight skeins of yarn, but you can use scraps and leftover bits of yarn to utilize your stash. This shawl is constructed one section at a time as you knit the pieces together, so there is no sewing required. A final I-cord bind off frames the triangular shape. Use this modular design as a canvas to paint and explore marled knitting.
