All About This Fantastic Palette Shawl
•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.

I was looking for a pattern to knit a shawl with this delicious “Outer Banks SunSet” yarn I stumbled upon and this pattern was just perfect. I consider myself a beginner and your instructions were perfect! Thanks for making this pattern free!
Very easy pattern which gives a lovely effect. Very happy with this.
Beautiful shawl, made in Merak Hues, Sparkle DK. It ended up being larger than I expected! I am eager for the cooler weather for which it will provide a warm, stylish wrap.
This pattern worked up into a beautiful shawl, though a bit larger than I expected! Looking forward to cooler weather to use it. Love the colors!
I am a new knitter, and I am loving this pattern! The directions are clear and easy to follow. I am using 2 different tones of a marled blue DK weight merino and silk blend. Thank you Chandi for the opportunity to try this beautiful pattern. I am loving it!
Easy but confusing at the same time......
While I haven't made it, the pattern is easy to read and has all information needed
Well written and clear. Easy to follow
I like this pattern because it was easy and my hands don't hurt as much knitting as they do crocheting. Thanks for giving it free.
I really like this pattern because I haven't knitted much in years and can't follow a complicated one anymore. I was able to do this one and will make it again, hopefully without so many mistakes. Thanks for giving it free. I've been looking for something like it for months.
I am anxious to finish this. The instructions are easy for me, a beginner, to follow. I appreciate the video as well.
This is a beautiful shawl and if they are your thing or you'd just like to make them it certainly is worth it.
I am yet to begin but am really looking forward to this pattern. I am using merino held with mohair silk for a present for my sister.
As a beginner knitter, I am eagerly looking for easy patterns to use as projects and this Palette Shawl pattern is something I can't wait to start with. Thanks!
Lovely wrap! Can't wait to make it!
As a novice to knitting I love this pattern. Easy to read and to follow. No I just had more time for knitting.
Good morning. This shawl is gorgeous written with easy to follow directions especially for an absolute beginner
I have just started knitting this! It is so fun to see the pattern come together. I actually watched the video first and fell in love with it. I do love the blue, and hope to knit a second one in another color. As soon as I saw this, I knew that I had the perfect yarn for it, already in my stash. It's a gorgeous brown tweed that I have had for years, and it is looking amazing! I can't wait until it is done, and I get to wear it! Thank you so much for this wonderful pattern!
Looking forward to work on it
Love the pattern; it’s going to make a beautiful gift for my daughters!
This is a very simple pattern. The instructions are very neat and clear, and the video made it all crystal clear.
Really lovely easy pattern. I'm not a confident knitter but am looking forward to finishing a couple of crochet projects and starting it. The tutorial Chandi does is so lovely and easy to follow, I'm sure even I won't go wrong x
I love it!!!
I am new to knitting. I have been looking for a pattern that is simple enough for me to knit, yet beautiful and sophisticated. This pattern fulfills my search.
Love the pattern, thank you so much, I was wondering if it could be knit up in 4 ply?
I have not started this project, but appreciate the fact that it was free especially since I am in South Africa.
I really like how easy it is to remember this pattern. I'm only about 15 rows in so far and it's been enjoyable to knit.
The pattern is beautiful, I’m choosing what to do with it, but I already know that the result will be amazing, thank you so much!
Thanks for sharing this lovely design
Beautiful shawl looking forward to making.
This pattern is very easy to create and a good practice for a beginner continental style. I love that it is so airy and it can be made with any wool you have! Love it!!
Absolutely amazing. Im knitting this right now and as it grows im smiling bigger as well. The lacey feel and texture is amazing. Im using yarn bees soft and sleek Dk fingering yarn in linen,pumpkin paradise,and a dark Ash grey. Its going to be amazing . I bought these yarns awhile ago and gad no idea what to do with it . But now i do. Thank you
I just received this pattern & love all the possibilities. Can't wait to get started! Thanks so much for sharing this!
Just obtained this beautiful pattern & I'm excited about all the possibilities. Can't wait to get started! Thanks for your generosity!
I am so happy to have found this shawl. I wanted to make a lacy shawl, but, with some short term memory issues, I felt like a more complicated pattern would not be a relaxing knit. This is knitting up wonderfully. Thank you for this wonderful pattern! Have a lovely day, all!
Loving this pattern so easy and simple but with an intricate look. Doing mine with a soft mohair yarn as a light shawl looks fabulous. Will certainly make more using different yarns so versatile thanks
This wrap is yummy. I love Big shawls and this one fits the bill. Think you for being so generous.
I love the look of this Shawl, I can't wait to knit it and from what other reviewer are saying, this will be a easy knit.
Perfect excuse for buying more sparkly, soft yarn! Gorgeous!
Looking forward to making Palette
Very nice drape and perfect colors.
Beautiful drape and the colors are perfect.
Made one for my best friend for her birthday, now her sister wants one. Such an easy pattern into such beautiful work.
A true masterpiece....
Gorgeous colours and a true masterpiece.
Fabulous yarn, I know my shawl will be beautiful. Love the sparkle woven into yarn. Great job, Chandi!
What a lovely yarn that is. Haven’t started my shawl, but just looking and feeling the yarn, I know it will be fabulous!
I loved the unusual shape of this shawl! Added to it is the ease of knitting it. The lovely effect of the finished product belies the ease with which it knits up. I shall have it on my needles soon as I loved it totally!
Another look for Chandi!! Love this shawl and the colors it is done in. Can hardly wait to try this one for myself!
Cannot wait to get started!!
This makes a great gift!
Super easy pattern to knit up for a last minute gift. Nice.
this pattern is easy to knit and i like the shawl so much that i am making another one for my friend
This pattern is very easy to follow, works up quickly and would work with any color combo you have in mind. I currently am doing all four of the October kits for a spooking fad shawl. I try to post a picture when it is done. Thanks for such wonderful yarn and a great pattern to use with it!
Very easy pattern and knits up into a beautiful wrap.
This pattern is very easy to follow and works up beautifully! The yarns are easy to work with and feel beautiful in your hand. So happy to have found this source for wonderful yarns and patterns.
I am just learning to knit and I found this pattern easy to read and follow.
I got this pattern for a great person. She loves to knit. I thought this pattern would be great for her. The pattern itself is written with easy directions. Thank you for the availability.
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!!
I love the look of the shawl and am looking forward to seeing it on my needles.
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.
Love the pattern & can't wait to start making it!!!
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!
HI 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. Joan
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.
Beautiful piece, I love it. I will start knitting one soon. Thanks for sharing this pattern.
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.
The pattern is very easy to follow and read. I have really enjoyed making it thank you so much. Keep the patterns coming.
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. :-)
