This relaxing garter stitch project plays with short rows and I-cord edges to create a large wavy shape. Choose three colors faded together for the medium size or make a massive shlanket (shawl + blanket) with five skeins of fingering weight yarn like Qing Fibre’s or Fru Valborg’s beautifully hand painted yarns. The short row wedges gradually expand the shape so you can bind off at any time.
