A two-row color change can transform a simple garter stitch pattern into something you can’t stop knitting. This simple but fun shawlette looks amazing in monochromatic or high-contrast colors. Because you knit this project from end to end and shape it with increases and decreases at one end, you can easily make it larger or smaller.

This delightful accessory is one you’ll want to have in every color you wear. It’s that perfect little something to wrap around your neck in any season.
