Polychromatic Shawl


Polychromatic Shawl

Join the Polychromatic CAL in my group, starting June 5!

Yarn kits are available from Blackwattle Yarn

Polychromatic is the perfect shawl to play with color. It features delicate puff stitch shells that shift from one color to the next across the shawl. Break out that special set of miniskeins, a long gradient, or get creative with leftovers. The shawl can be made with: One main color and 10-12 minis, 20-24 minis, or one main color and one contrast color (solids or gradients). A coloring page is included for you to design your perfect color palette.

Polychromatic shawl is worked in rows from one end to the other on the bias.

Level: Easy/Intermediate The pattern uses puff stitches and two basic decrease stitches, which are detailed in the picture tutorial.
