Spring It On!
DESCRIPTIONSpring It On! is a joyous asymmetrical triangle shawl that plays with colors, textures, and stitch patterns. Pick three colors that go well together and have a good amount of contrast between them.
There are a few points in the pattern where you can choose your own adventure. Easy and mindless? Choose Option 1. Something a little more interesting? Choose Option 2. At the end of the pattern you’ll have a completely unique shawl with your colors and choices.
Some stitch patterns come only as row-by-row written instructions, some are also charted. The pattern is written with both metric and US terminology.
This shawl was originally released as the Spring 2019 mystery knitalong from talvi knits.
