This colorful shawl is knit sideways using three colors with a lovely picked up border. Fade your colors from light to dark using a striping sequence that blends the colors together. The ribbed border features yarn over accents and a smocked knitting technique that gathers stitches together. A picot bind off finishes the edge with a decorative touch. This design is super easy to knit so you can enjoy the gradual color changes and fluid drape of the fabric.
