Palate Cleanser Shawl
This simple shawl works up quickly in DK weight yarn, but you could use any weight wool to knit it. Choose a needle size that gives you a nice drape: a size or two larger than recommended for the yarn. You can also vary the patterns, working more or fewer rows of the garter and lace patterns.
You can knit this shawl using a gradient, a solid color, a variegated colorway, or work it in stripes of two or more colors.
It’s easy to work until you have used up all your yarn: just keep working until you are almost out of yarn, making sure you have enough remaining to work the stretchy cast-off, which uses enough yarn for 2 rows of regular knitting.
The pattern is written out: no charts.
