Spectator Shawl is the perfect accompaniment to the Spectator cropped jumper (coming soon!). Use the same three colours as your jumper to create a matchy matchy layer of the delicious fabric. With a simple garter tab cast on and triangular construction the clever wobbly stripes are super simple, created with knits and purls using one yarn at a time per row, it’s a complexity illusion. The bold colour blocks match the jumper in a sporty style. Instead of weaving in your ends, how about plaiting them?

The joy of this style shawl is you can keep on going to make it a large as you want! Or until you run out of yarn.
