I dyed a beautiful spectrum of colors similar to the leftover version. If you’d like to get your Kolorblok Kit from me head over here.

Kolorblok is the answer to your ever growing stash with mini skeins. Pic 10 colors you like most, or use two skeins of favorite yarns, doesn’t matter if they are solids or variegated, and watch your shawl grow prettier and prettier with each section.
The shawl is ideal for all knitters: beginners as well as advanced knitters missing good old Garter fun!

The gauge isn’t crucial on this project, but differences will affect the finished size as well as the required yardage.

NOTE: Each section is calculated to use a full mini skein. If you want to avoid running out of yarn, make sure to match the washed gauge. It’s best to make section #1 and if you run out, just go down in needle size and restart. Otherwise, have more yarn than recommended in the pattern.

If you purchase 5 of my self-published designs at the same time (they need to be in the same cart), you will get the least expensive for free!
