Shima Shima by Olga Buraya-Kefelian
Stripes that are fun and mindless! This garter stitch striped shawl is worked in one piece using modular construction. The ombré effect is achieved by working sections of the main color together with one of the three contrast colors in the palette. Transforming the resulting fabric into a bold graphic wrap!
