Swing Dance by Lisa K Ross | This crescent-shaped shawl will dance across your needles like a Swing Dance performance! Knit using a single skein of five ‘Rainbow is My Favorite Color’ colorways, this design was created to maximize your yardage with eye-catching results! While the majority of the shawl is worked in garter stitch, transitions between colors will use slip-stitch mosaic patterning, creating terrific graphic appeal. The final shape drapes easily when worn, creating spirals of fabric on either side of the neck. The drape of the design keeps the shawl in place when worn, even while jumping, jiving, and wailing on the dance floor! Looking to liven up your Saturday night? Give Swing Dance a try!
