JuJu shawl pattern
Colorful, knitted top down and ever increasing crescent shawl. Two distinct lace patterns knitted in a single color to offset the bright and colorful garter stitches done with a mix of colors and textures~
I created this shawl for Julie of JuJuknits and her mobile knit shop in Fort Worth, Texas. In fact this Saturday I will be holding a Trunk show at her mobile yarn shop.
Written pattern with charts for the two lace patterns.
The size, a comfortable 84” by 15”.
C1: 1 Layers yarn cake, 200 yards in 10 portions of various weights and colors.
C2: 2 skeins of Organic cotton, 125 yards each in a DK weight.

Darning needle or crochet hook for finishing
8 sts and 14 rows in 2” of Garter stitch, counting 7 ridges with sport weight yarn.
NOTE: I am a loose knitter and you may not be, so making a gauge swatch to see what needle size works for you will ensure getting the size as shown here.
