This pattern is designed for use with 5 skeins of my Pearlescent Superwash Merino Wool Silk Worsted Weight yarn. (Total of 20 oz, 1100 yards needed)
Colors used were 1 skein each (4 oz, 220 yards each) of : Buttercream Frosting, Cabbage Rose, Forget-Me-Not, Soft Sea Foam and Whipped Cream.
•It's an easy 2-row repeat. Yes, it's true. Simple to memorize and great for chatting and knitting at the same time.
•It's totally adjustable. Cast on more stitches for a blanket. Cast on fewer stitches for a scarf. Make it longer. Shorter. Whatever. I give you my cast on recommendations but feel free to experiment once you know the stitch pattern.
•You don't have to worry about running out of yarn. You'll start to notice this trend in a lot of my patterns. Since we dye small batches of many limited edition colors you want to be able to just stop knitting if you run out of yarn, rather than need several more yards to complete it. So this pattern fits the bill.
•Makes for a great travel or movies cover up. Ever freeze to death in the movies? I do every time. This'll turn your frozen movie time into a cozy, cuddly, warm and shareable adventure. Take on the plane with you or in the car to drape up over your body when trying to nap during a trip. You can thank me later.
•A perfect writing/reading wrap. Curl up with your journal or favorite novel and snuggle with your Palette shawl. Don't forget some tea!
•It's a parallelogram! That right there makes it super cool.
•Due to its size, it's a cross between a blanket and a shawl. A shanket? A blawl?
•Great for use with solid colorways but simple enough for variegated yarn or gradients. Have your way with the pattern. It can take it.
It uses size US 8 (5.0mm) circular needles (or long straights) and is great for beginners to advanced-level knitters! You'll need to know how to knit, purl, k2tog (knit two together) and yo (yarn over).

This is a very easy pattern to follow. I am in the process of making a baby blanket with this pattern. I am hoping for a wonderful outcome. Thank you!!

Love a shawl pattern that has an easy grace and a stylish look that goes from casual to formal at the flip of the yarn. I can see myself wearing this all-year, at any time

I'm excited about this pattern because it's an easy 2-row repeat, free-form color way and I prefer rectangular over triangle shawls. It will be a good project for a road trip, or as Chandi says, a knit & chat session.

Well, I was asked to write a review of this product. I'm sure the yarn is of high quality. I chose this pattern because I figured it would be easier than some other patterns. I'm going to do it in light blue and give it to my daughter.
ROCK ON, CHANDI !!!

This pattern, like all of Chandi's patterns, is very easy to follow. But if you DO run into a problem, all you have to do is shoot her an email or a message on Facebook, and she'll be happy to help. The pearlescent wool yarn called for in this pattern is gorgeous and a delight to knit or crochet with. Thanks, Chandi!

I have not had a chance to make this shawl yet, I'm still working on another project.
I really do appreciate your generosity with your patterns and hope to make one of these for a Christmas gift!
Thanks again and have a wonderful week!! Lauren

I never received the pattern so I can not write a review. The picture of the shawl looks beautiful I really would like to make it.

I absolutely love this pattern for the Free Palette Shawl. I'm finishing a baby blanket and then going to start this. Pattern is easy to read and understand which certainly helps me. Please keep the great patterns coming!

I am planning to use this scarf pattern for Christmas gifts. I was so pleased with how well it is written. I really can't wait to get started. It's a perfect pattern to use with my Chandi yarns!

I am currently knitting the circular scarf, so this is up next. I will probably start it next month.

Cannot wait to knit one!

I am a very lousy knitter, i love to do it, but i'm just no good at it.
SHOCKER! I was actually able to complete this and without tears!!!!
Thanks for such an easy pattern.

I am a lover of simple knitting patterns and so chose this Palette Shawl. I've already started knitting it and all is going along famously. I'm looking forward to getting this finished in the next couple of weeks!!1

I haven't started this pattern yet but looking forward to getting started. Have been teaching myself the Continental style so hope to have that all figured out soon to use it on this pattern. Can't hardly wait. Thanks for another beauty.

I love this pattern! Great for beginning knitting and even advanced knitting. I love the colors and how it looks so feminine. I love bigger or larger shawls that you can really wrap up in so this is perfect. It would be great as a lovely gift for someone special or make for yourself! Thank Chandi for sharing such a lovely pattern! I can't wait to make this - have to wait until I can purchase the yarn, hopefully soon. :-)
