Cuar (Irish for ‘curve) is a biased garter stitch triangular shawl. The shawl begins at a point, and is increased as you work. Cuar features rainbow stripes, worked in a combination of garter stitch and slipped stitch rows, for a gradual transition between colours. Cuar features pom pom rainbows for an extra little hint of fun!
Cuar is the third pattern in my Rainbow series, which also features Solas and Stua.
