This shawl begins with a traditional semi-circle construction, alternating between a solid and variegated colourway. But I wanted to play around a little bit with the shaping and so I introduced short rows. I am really pleased with the way the stripes from the beginning section and the short rows meet.

The construction is quite simple, including the use of the short rows, which means this shawl is perfect for knitters who are new to shawls, as well as those who want something they can pick up and put down without having to worry about concentrating or losing their place within a pattern.

The whole shawl uses 2 100g balls of 4-ply/fingering weight yarn.
