Beginner - Perfect for those who are just beginning or have knit a project or two. Skills include increasing with kfbf and creating texture with slipped stitches.
Notes From the Designer:
•Slipped stitches lend texture to this oversized shawl. Enjoy using as many colors as you wish to create a show stopping piece that is sure to turn heads and have you “proud as a peacock” to wear! Wrap yourself in color and let your wild side shine with this multi-seasonal accessory that’s great for knitters of all skill levels.
•This shawl is constructed from the top down, beginning with a garter tab cast on. After the setup section, an intuitive 8-row pattern is repeated down to the ribbed border. Colors are switched periodically, and the slipped sts at the color changes lend a sort of color melt effect to the pattern.
•Instructions are given for striping 6 colors, but you can easily stripe more or fewer colors.
•Size can be easily adjusted by working more or fewer pattern repeats to achieve your preferred size before working the ribbed border. Gauge is not crucial but may cause your shawl to be larger or smaller than the sample shown.

This is a lovely pattern using EFA yarn! I'm not a real experienced knitter but have made several things. I'm still learning not to make mistakes. I did make a few mistakes counting when I started this pattern, but frogged it and started again. This time, because I'm familiar with the pattern, it is going more smoothly. I love it and it's easy for a beginner.
Once again a gorgeous pattern, ready to be created with yarn.
This pattern was super easy to follow and a joy to knit! It just flies off the needles once you understand the stitch pattern

Although I am just a beginner when it comes to knitting, I am feeling confident because of the instructions. Can't wait to get started.
I love the look of this shawl. I've been looking for a pattern to go with some yarn I bought planning to make a shawl for my mother and this caught my eye. Unfortunately, I can't speak to the pattern itself as I have not had time to try it yet. However, I can tell you the purchasing and downloading process is a breeze. The email with the pattern download arrives almost the moment I hit the Submit button and the ordering process is clear and straightforward.
I love this pattern! The flexibility in terms of what colors to use, the way it looks so cozy and warm...and at last I might be able to nail down the trickiness of that spine down the mid-back! Awesome!!!
