Colorful, texture rich and various yarn weights make up this pretty rectangular shawl. Worked from the bottom up, starting with a pretty lace border. Moving up to the many changes in yarns that make this shawl stand out. There are interesting stitch patterns as well as simple stockinette knitting. Framing the top edge is an I-cord bind off done with two yarns held together to give it more prominence.
Over all, this shawl is a real pleasure to knit.

The pattern is written, has two lace charts and how to video links. Tech edited and test knitted. I like to thank all the test knitters for their help.

The size is 73” by 14”, blocked though can easily be made wider and deeper by adjusting the stitch numbers in the cast on and more rows added in individual sections. Of course more yarn will be needed.
