This simple garter stitch shawl is composed of three sections that grow with short rows and increases. A DK weight version features 3 neutral colors for a gradient effect. A smaller fingering weight version uses 6 colors that are striped in each short row section. An I-cord border finishes the shawl with a strong pop of color.
The size is determined by the yarn weight. The small size is knit with fingering weight yarn and the large size is knit with DK weight yarn.
If you wish to use an extra color for the I-cord, it uses approximately 100yds / 91m of fingering weight yarn.
