Painting Waves Shawl by Westknits | This fingering weight shawl is knit sideways starting at the little edge and increasing toward the wide edge. One main color is featured throughout all the garter stitch stripes. Eight contrast colors are used for painting the waves in stockinette stitch. The stitches are very easy to knit with I-cord edges framing the wavy triangular shape. This design is perfect for using mini skeins, leftover bits of fingering weight yarn, or self-striping yarns.

Gauge: 22 sts & 36 rows = 4” / 10cm in pattern after blocking (4 rows garter stitch + 4 rows stockinette stitch)

Finished Measurements: 66” / 168cm wingspan length, 54” / 137cm at widest part, after blocking (*Note: You can create a larger shawl by continuing the pattern repeat as many times as you like. If you work more pattern repeats for a larger than recommended size, you will need more than the specified yardage requirements.)
