With two colours and a delectable combination of garter and Fisherman’s Rib stitch, this shawl is the epitome of captivating depth and texture. Designed to use up every inch of yarn, knitters of every level will savor the completion of this gorgeous accessory.

The shawl is constructed by repeating garter stitch, stripes, and Fisherman’s Rib stitch, which slowly grow into an asymmetrical shape. After binding off the last repeat, stitches are picked up on the right side and worked into a garter stitch colour block.
