Confluence is a shawl inspired by the joining of two rivers, coming from opposite directions, joining and mingling where they meet. To showcase the difference between two rivers that might have run over different ground, rocks and mountains, the colors are inversed, which conveniently also uses up an even amount of yarn. This crescent shaped shawl is worked in separate pieces, joined and knit together via a center section, with no picking up of stitches involved.
