About the Pattern

Spring Stripes is one of my earliest shawl patterns. It’s so lightweight with sections of mesh separated by stripes of stockinette stitch. It’s a perfect warm-weather accessory. This shawl is knit from the top down and is finished with an i-cord bind-off. The pattern is easy to memorize, making it great TV knitting.

I made mine with Yummy Fingering by Candy Skein. The colors I used were Sage, Banana, and Grape Fizz. Way back in March 2015 when I designed this shawl, fades weren’t really a thing yet. Looking at it now I think this is the perfect pattern to do a fade. Maybe I should knit up a new Spring Stripes and try it out.
