Inspired by the strong lines and movement of a fabulous mural in Montreal, this shawl is a terrific opportunity to pair a colorful gradient or mini skein pack with a solid yarn. Slipped stitches and cables create a sophisticated pattern across the simple garter stitch of the shawl. A bonus? There’s very little purling!
