Tropical Dilemma Shawl Pattern

This gorgeous triangular shawl is knit from the top down, beginning with a garter tab cast on. It is created by melding 10 different colorways into each other. As you add increases to the spine and edges a triangular shape is formed. The simple repeat of knits and purl rows are memorizable and mediative, making this the perfect lazy day, knit night or Netflix project! Grab a kit of colorful yarn or use up bits from your beautiful stash, this shawl is all about letting the yarn do the heavy lifting so you can relax and enjoy!
