Based on a scene in Hayao Miyazaki’s anime film Ponyo, this large shawl is a vivid adventure in color scheme. Like Ponyo running on top of the waves, the colors play off each other to give a vivid pop in the center and towards the outer rings of this circular shawl. It works up quickly into a warm, oversized garment with a number of stitch variations: brioche, stockinette, garter, large yarn overs – perfect for practicing different stitches, and fun even for experienced knitters!

Notes
If you only have larger cable needles, you can use magic loop to knit. Otherwise, it may be worth starting on smaller needles and increasing the length of the cable as your shawl grows in size.
