This top-down geometric shawl is knit with four colors. Yarn over increases zig and zag to create the large expansive shape. Each section offers a new stitch pattern for an exciting knitting experience. Garter stitch stripes, slipped stitches, seed stitch, and eyelet rows decorate the fabric. The signature Westknits shaping style is super versatile to wear. Wrap it like a scarf or drape it over your shoulders like a poncho and rock this dramatic statement piece.
