When times are tough, I find it useful to turn to the power of Positive Thinking. It’s a chance to focus on the good and shift your mindset to expect beneficial results. This brightly colored shawl is intended to do just that! Beginning with just a few stitches and working its way outward into a sweeping triangular shawl, you can’t help but smile at the relaxing rhythm of garter stitch and the shifting color changes. The rainbow mini-skeins alternate with a single MC to create a simple mosaic pattern filled with ‘positive’ plus signs throughout the body of the shawl. A rainbow band sweeps across the outer edge, highlighting a striking band of of happy colors to finish the look. Choose 10 colors you love or your favorite kit of minis, but be sure to soak in the transformative power of Positive Thinking.
