Dotted Rays

Designed by Stephen West

This arched shawl begins at the center with only a few stitches while yarn over increases quickly expand the shape. Garter stitch short row wedges add length to one side forming rays that gradually increase in size. The repetitive knit stitches and rhythmic short rows are easy to work while still keeping your interest, a perfect travel project! Built in I-cord edges and an I-cord bind off outline the entire shape for a clean finish. Choose one yarn or use different stash and scrap yarns for a striped effect.
