Choose two colors to knit this triangular shawl constructed sideways starting from a small corner. Ribbed and textured edges seamlessly frame the graphic bubble stitch pattern. The bubbles are worked using only one color at a time. When you start a new color stripe, knit into a stitch from four rows below to achieve the playful bubble texture. The Bubble Shawl features West Wool Bicycle, a soft yarn with beautiful drape and crisp stitch definition.
