A mesmerizing mosaic pattern fans out boldly across the surface of this cozy shawl in two sizes (petite/tall) with wavelike rhythm. Work in a two-color palette for super-defined contrast or mix a solid with a gradient for more subtle, ever-changing effects. Deceptively simple to work, using just one color per row, the garter-based motif is easily memorized and the shaping is simple—this is a great option for a beginning colorwork project and amusing fun for experienced knitters.
Samples were knit using Bare Naked Wools Modern Deco Sport with Feederbrook Farm Entropy Sport (Hurricane gradient, size P, and Sugar Maples gradient, size T) OR Stone Soup Fingering (solid version, size T).
Substituting yarn and/or needles may result in an overall variation in size, drape, or yardage requirement.
