The semi-circular construction of Knitprovisation is very easy to knit. That way you can relax and enjoy the calm rows without constantly counting too much. The design plays with various stitch patterns: cables, slip stitch dots, twisted ribbing, honeycomb cables and diagonal cables. The wavy border finished by an I-Cord Bind-Off completes the cozy shawl.
