After designing Town And Country I thought it would be fun to take the colour blocks into a rectangular shawl. Then I thought, lets make it a little different yet again so I brought it to the side and added some fringes, then knotted the fringes simply because “why not, knot?”.

The self striping yarn adds a medley of colours to the simplicity of the solid colour blocks and makes for a lovely gradient fringe edge.If you aren’t a fan of fringes then just end it with a clean edge.

Mary-Ann Lammers is a very talented designer and if I could, I’d give this pattern a star rating of 6 at least. Tigerli

Lovely designer to test knit for! She’s quick to respond and very helpful. I loved doing this one so much I signed up for another… :) WordCobbler
