Knitprovisation is a top-down shawl with twisting cables and textured stitch patterns. Five colors of worsted weight yarn are striped together to create this quick-to-knit cozy shawl for the autumn winter season. The semi-circle is finished with a striped wavy border, resulting in a classic Westknits shawl shape with a textured twist!
