Are you searching the souk for treasures? You’ll find one in On the Spice Market, an asymmetrical triangle shawl featuring a zesty mixture of textures, slipped stitches, and short rows. Its generous size lets you style it a variety of ways—however you do, you’re sure to get compliments! The garter stitch stripes and contrast slipped stitch rows are perfect for showcasing a gradient of colors. This is a great stash busting project with almost all colors under 100 yds.
