Wishing Rock Shawl by Pip & Pin Collective | The Wishing Rock shawl is knit using three colours and is worked side to side. By using increases and decreases, you will create a large diamond shape which is, once complete, folded in half to create a warm and drapey shawl. In the sample I've used three colours, but this is also a great pattern for using mini skeins or scraps of fingering weight yarn. It's a great canvas to get creative! The added tassels are optional, but help the shawl stay in place, and who doesn't love a good tassel?
