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.

Kit includes pattern and selected yarn. For yarn winding services, click here.  If you are choosing highly saturated colors, you may want to wash skeins before winding.
