This top-down shawl begins with self-striping yarn in a corrugated ridge stitch pattern for quick and easy knitting. A second color is introduced with slipped stitch color work, creating bold columns within the fabric. A garter stitch border finishes the edge. Have fun choosing color combinations!

The colorful stitch pattern reminds me of all the houses in Reykjavik with corrugated metal siding.
