Niebo - Polish for sky

This shawl is easy to knit and will hightlight your yarn and color choices. It will be a great shawl to wear all year around.

Have fun combining (semi-)solid, variegated or speckled yarns to your favorite color palette.

Niebo is worked flat from the top down, starting with a garter tab. Stitches are increased along the edges and along the center to create a shallow triangular shawl. The pattern is fully written out with stitch counts throughout the entire shawl.

Pattern also contains a photo tutorial to carry up yarn along one side.
