Pride Goeth Before the Shawl KnitKit
The second pattern in my Pride series, this employs a series of brightly-colored mini skeins into a generously-sized rectangular rainbow of a shawl.
I designed the color transitions with star-like motifs that keep you entertained as you knit, allow the colors to really shine against each other, and celebrate the sparkle of Pride!
