Dorothy Shawl – Knit Pattern


This shawl was designed by Amanda of Mandi’s Makings.

From the designer…

“I’m so excited to introduce you to The Dorothy Shawl.  This is a beginner knit pattern using KT and the Squid Everyday mins in a fun array of colors.  It’s meant to keep the excitement going as you knit a new color in this asymmetrical shawl.  The stitches are simple garter and drop stitches throughout, so it’s a great knit to enjoy while relaxing.  The rainbow effect reminds me of the Wizard of Oz and I was called Dorothy a few times as a kid, so this name seems fitting.  I hope you enjoy creating your own look to this shawl placing the colors in an order that inspire and excite you!”
