Painting Honeycombs Shawl - Small Honeycombs
Painting Honeycombs Shawl - Small Honeycombs by Westknits | This triangular shawl begins at the small corner and increases to the wide edge with the bold honeycomb pattern. The blue sample with color pops features our West Wool Bicycle yarn as the main color with five shades of Glowhair held double for extra fluffy honeycombs. You can easily customize the shawl by knitting more pattern repeats and you can knit it in any yarn weight! The pattern is easy to follow and suitable for adventurous beginners because you only work with one color at a time. Enjoy the colorful rows and feel free to add as many color pops as you want!
