My inspiration for this pattern came from the beautifully chosen colors of the Yowza Minis. I decided to use six colors for a large, feminine wrap. The pattern has no purl stitches and (almost) nothing to count, making it perfect for beginners and newbies.

The shawl is worked in stripes, ordered from light to dark, with the last stripe combining multiple colors. The Wellig pattern is easy to memorize after the first repeat, and it is so much fun to knit and to wear. If you want an even larger shawl, feel free to add more colors.
