Choose seven colors to knit this fingering weight shlanket (shawl + blanket). Each parallelogram is attached to the previous section so there is no seaming required. This modular design is knit from the center outward, so you can simply stop early for a smaller size. This pattern is also great for using leftover bits of yarn and single skeins. Use as many colors as you like for this graphic statement piece.
