The Landscape Shawl uses a simple micro stripe garter stitch variation to play up the broken line junction between two colors that occurs naturally on the backside of garter stitch. The shawl is knit seamlessly in two congruent triangles to create a generously sized, reversible parallelogram wrap. I hope this pattern inspires you to record your own memories using your beloved fingering weight remnants, but it is also quite striking worked up in a high-contrast pairing.

Suggested Yarn​​ 340g of fingering weight yarn or 170g of light and 170g of dark. You will need TWO 100g skeins of each color for the two color version. (4 skeins total)

Chasing Rabbits Fiber Co. Fern, Solo, BFL fingering, or Merinolux fingering.

I used Serenade and Steadfast on Fern in the two color example. High contrast is the key.

If using remnants, try to keep as much contrast between color A and color B as you can. Otherwise, the effect is lost and it just looks like plain garter stitch. I recommend curating your remnants into light and dark collections before beginning. Take a black & white photo of your selections to see past the color and truly judge the contrasting values.
