This asymmetrical triangular shawl is designed for James River Yarn Crawl 2023 that includes five beautiful yarn shops. Each shop is represented by one of the Pantone colors of the year. I chose to work the colors in order I had visited the shops during last year’s yarn crawl, and you can do the same or make up your own order. Once you understand the flow of the design, you can make this shawl larger, or play around with building blocks to your liking. It would be easy to work this pattern in only two colors or all the colors you like from your stash. The shawl has a twin crochet version, Stash Dash.
