This intriguing semicircle shawl is begun with a provisional cast on and worked from neck to hem in a series of motifs progressing from solid to patterned to lacy. Slip stitch combinations provide visual texture and complexity here to mix separate colors in a coordinating set, but the piece may be worked in a dyed gradient or solid yarn.
Substituting yarn and/or needles may result in an overall variation in size and drape.
