Notes From the Designer:
•This pattern is designed for 4 colors of sport weight yarn. Create a gorgeous gradient like shown, or opt for stripes or a single color. The pattern lends itself to speckled or variegated yarn as well, as it’s so simple. Make it your own! Just like your life - you get to design it. The size is easily adjustable. Just stop knitting whenever you like the size!
•Sonder is the idea that each person that passes by is living a life as vivid and complex as your own. They have hopes, dreams, wishes, sorrows, regrets, friends, family, routines. We each have a unique path to walk; our own special reason we were put on this planet. Isn’t that amazing to ponder? No one else will experience your life - how will you choose to live it and what will you do with this precious gift of a day?
•This is a wonderfully easy, totally customizable beginner-level shawl. No worries about running out of yarn - just stop knitting when you like the size! Have fun!

Gorgeous shawl pattern
Shawls are my thing and there is no such thing as enough patterns in my collection.
Picked up knitting again after laying my needles down for a few years. Saw this YouTube tutorial and the lady's positive upbeat personality. Practiced. Had to unravel my first attempt as I messed up the simple rows one and two count :) while doing on straight needles. Now a few days later, I am on my second ball of clay colored yarn and circular needles. Thank you for this beautiful and stylish design!!

Lovely pattern. Thank you so much Chandi :)
The design is very pretty. The instructions are easy to remember since it is just repeating of 2 rows. I can watch a movie or TV and not lose track of what I am doing. Great job Chandi!
This is a fairly simple pattern but a beautiful one indeed. Love the color changing option too. All your work is beautiful, thank you!
This is a very nice pattern for beginners like me. Even the color changing is fairly simple with the two row repeat. Love this shawl!
Absolutely fantastic it's the first shawl I've ever been able to knit as the instructions by chandi were very easy to follow as I can't afford the proper yarn i had to use DK yarn and it's turned out just fine ,x

Beginner knitter, looking forward to making this.
This is the first knit shawl I have made. I am primarily a crocheter, but I found this pattern easy to do and follow. A great pattern to do when relaxing on couch watching tv.
Sonder is the first knitnshawl I have made. I'm primarily a crocheter, but I found this pattern, along with the video, really helpful in completeting this.
Enjoying making this shawl. For me it is comfort. There is many different colors you can choose to do; the sky is the limit.
This is a wonderful pattern if you want something soothing. The garter stitches is a comforting knit. The pattern is very easy to memorize. Good choice for beginners and comfort knitting for the rest.
This looks like a very clearly written, simple pattern that yields a beautiful shawl. I haven't made it yet, but it is definitely in my future!
I'm not a beginner knitter but struggled to find a shawl pattern that didn't have lots of pattern stitches and changes. I looked for YEARS!, not kidding here. Sonder is PERFECT! Easy pattern, easy to remember, easy on the eye. Should be called Sonder Wonder! The best shawl pattern ever!
Looking forward to making this, thank you for the pattern

I've been working on this pattern since the day it came out. No, I'm not a beginning knitter, but, yes, I am enjoying the calm that comes from working simple stitches. I'm putting my world in order.
